While he may be Nottingham born and raised and now London based, there’s no better term for his debut Tread Water than otherworldly. First impressions may leave no defined sense of genre, which may make it sound a little confused, but George ties together all these extraneous themes in a masterful fashion.
Tread Water was written at a time where I didn’t really have a musical identity or lyrics to draw inspiration from. I had just started to teach myself basic production and I had become fascinated with vocal manipulation and using a contrast between organic and artificial sounds to tell different sides of the same situation. I suddenly found that writing with obscure instrumentation gave me a lot of creative freedom, and the lyrics and arrangement came together pretty quickly after that.
The creative freedom has clearly allowed his true nature to flourish, we’re excited to see where it goes next.
