SINGLE REVIEW: Georgia Mae – High  

To-date Georgia Mae’s career has had many highlights including writing and recording tracks for shows like Keeping Up With The Kardashians, working in sound design at Skywalker Sound and Warner Bros. Studios, and being nominated for Most Promising Female Songwriter and Best Female Pop Artist at the 2016 Queensland Music Awards. But the Lismore raised and Brisbane based singer-songwriter is ready to add another personal milestone to the achievements with the release of her debut EP ‘Gigi And The Dragonfly’ on April 8. 

Following the release of recent singles ‘Gentle’ and ‘Emma’, she has released the lush pop track, ‘High’. This is by far her most palatable pop release yet, and immediately draws the listener in with its infectious hook. Beginning with a dreamy soundscape led by a gentle guitar guitar riff, she adds this groovy second guitar riff which drives the song into a dreamscape chorus that feels like it was a pop song lost from the early 2000’s. 

Complimenting the bubbly production, she describes the euphoric feeling that radiates through falling in love with someone. It’s a normal feeling that gets so sensationalised in the moment and it has this intoxicating and beautiful sentiment. “I’m dizzy from this chemistry. And I just keep floating up higher with your energy” she sings before adding “Cos I’ve never known a guy who could get me so High. I thought I’d met them all before, had given up hope, but damn”.

‘High’ is genuinely Georgia Mae’s strongest release yet, and boldly taps further into her pop soundscape. It’s a feel-good love song just in time for Valentines Day to help you feel giddy, even if you aren’t personally in love.
