George - Single Review: Vacant Cities

18 Feb 2019 // A review by Corinne Rutherford

Georgia Lines aka George is a bit of a local treasure I wasn’t aware of. Based in Mt Maunganui, George has just released her catchy debut single Vacant Cities, accompanied by a stunning music video which is a visual work of art.

Singer/songwriter George has been around for a few years, winning the SmokeFree RockQuest back in 2014 while in her last year at high school. Although she has not released anything since then, George has developed her sound and style and the result is stunning.

There is a maturity beyond her years reflected in Vacant Cities. The song is smooth, groovy pop with profound harmonious lyrics. She has a beautifully melodic voice which would appeal to a diverse range of people.

George is among the ranks of many talented young musicians which the SmokeFree RockQuest has brought to light. Her sound is clean and entirely marketable. The artistic flare reflected in her video, demonstrates originality and out of the box thinking.

I am keen to watch her progression as she evolves. Recommended listening.

Rating: ( 4 / 5 )

Bittercup - Single Review: Napkin
09 Sep 2019 // by Corinne Rutherford
I am a bit of a Punk Rock fan, so much so I went and joined a Post Punk band. I am not easily offended and pretty much reckon I have heard it all (or close to it), so I rubbed my hands in glee about New Plymouth band Bittercup's single release for Napkin.

26 Aug 2019 // by Corinne Rutherford
Malaysian born young New Zealand singer/songwriter Zane Nathan has just released his brand new original single, which is accompanied by a lyric video; Somethings. The song has a somewhat theatrical sound to it, which would not be out of place on a Disney musical soundtrack.
