Georgia said: “There’s a freedom you get with an EP – you can try things out, get it all out of your system. But all these songs are connected – they come from the same place. I imagined them all as scenes from the same film! “
Notes on the songs:
- 25 Minutes – “I’ve been meaning to ask you what it’s all been for.” Inspired by conversations with friends during the pandemic, this is a meditation on time passing: the things we might have lost, the things we did – or didn’t do – the things we spent too long waiting for, and the things we might have hidden away. Playlisted on BBC 6Music and Radio Wales.
- Saint – “you’ve got so much to be happy about.” What happens when sadness feels more familiar and comforting than happiness? What if you just want to stay in it?
- Half-Forgotten Heartbreak – “Faces put down to experience, don’t be so hard on yourself, they all made sense at the time.” Recorded completely live in one take, this is a song about nostalgia and the people lost along the way. In the strange time-warp of the pandemic, old relationships are re-evaluated, dissected, drawn out into the light – seen like this, they appear strange. “Time, time, endless time.” This is a woozy country song, best suited to the middle of the night.
- Kingfisher – Giving the EP its title, this song explores change, and the importance of giving yourself permission to be different, to move on. “If it feels like an anchor, untether”.
- The Sea – “Lick the salt, and lick your wounds, it’s OK to fall apart.” Moving back to the coastline where I grew up, this is a song about rediscovering how the sea restores. Mind, body, heart – the sea can put it all back together. The trick is remembering!
