Hannah Georgas - Enemies (Dine Alone Records) 
Hannah Georgas - Enemies

Release Date: 10th February 2014

Ms Georgas was one of my favourite finds of 2013 as she drifted ashore among a slew of Canadian talent so it's delightful news that she's coming to Europe for a fairly extensive tour. The single that accompanies the tour is 'Enemies' which is a gorgeously poppy affair with the indie nous of Fesit, Metronomy or Bat For Lashes. The undulating electronic bleeps and bloops are subtly underplayed as the beats keep the time but feel like they could fall over at any moment, like an exhausted middle distance runner approaching the finish line. Georgas' voice is as velvety smooth and cucumber cool as ever it was which is the real point here. I expect the live shows to be an indie-pop triumph with the Hannah Georgas playing the reluctant star, taking centre stage but being overwhelmed by the outpouring of love from the crowds on a nightly basis. Don't let me (or her) down, people.
