A stunning collection of songs that cement her knack for storytelling,Â Debut EP ‘Suburban Daze’Â fromÂ MeanjinÂ artistÂ Georgie NeilsenÂ arrives onÂ November 18.
Heartbreak, emotional chaos and reclaiming independence – these are the central threads in the fabric ofÂ ‘Suburban Daze’. Together with co-writer and close friendÂ Cody McWaters, Georgie NeilsenÂ has crafted a mature body of work that exudes powerful charm, and sees the artist reflect on the past as she moves forward into a new chapter.Â NeilsenÂ states: â€œThe EP began with the title track â€˜Suburban Dazeâ€™ when Cody and I recorded it back in 2019. We didnâ€™t have a definitive idea of what songs were going to be apart of this collection but they make a lot sense together now. What the songs have in common is that they were all written in my old bedroom at my parent’s house when I was in a daze a lot of the time, trying to make sense of who I was meant to be and from being created during that period in my life they hold a genuine amount of vulnerable, grief, passion, growth and understanding.â€
Opening with the delicate, stripped-back acoustic gem that isÂ A Day In A Life,Â the musician’s vocal prowess already takes hold with full force.
Next, country-leaning guitars and an indie-rock rhythm swell with earnest lyrics to a heartfelt crescendo inÂ Eyes Wide Open.
The talented songstress and cabaret performer says of the EP’s title track: “Suburban DazeÂ is an intrinsic description of the neighbourhood I grew up in from the native flora and fauna to the neighbours arguing around me. This song encapsulates the dichotomy of my teenage life.”
Indie-rock bangerÂ The Last Time I Felt Better depicts a tale of two people who fall into an addictive romance, while closing trackÂ I’m Changing is a coming-of-age tale, circling back to the artist’s journey with self-acceptance.
Two singles offÂ Georgie Neilsen‘sÂ new EP have already been greeted with rapturous applause and support fromÂ Double J, ABC Country, ABC Brisbane, Music Feeds, AAA Backstage, Scenestr, RAW Artists, Good Call Live, The AU Review, Livewire AUÂ and more.
NeilsenÂ and her band will be launching the EP at Brisbane’sÂ The BrightsideÂ onÂ November 20, supported byÂ LAYYLAÂ andÂ Tessa Fleur – TICKETS HERE
