Hannah Georgas, you write the kind of songs that coexist with summer days, reading books under trees, oversized sunglasses and cute hats with floral prints on bicycles. Her debut full-length This Is Good prevails at living up to the buzz generated by her EP the Beat Stuff, surpassing the hype to create an album that is equally grounded, but already showing an enhanced sense of maturity in its approach to song writing.
This Is Good is an understatement of a title, for this record is extremely strong for a debut and proves Vancouver’s Hannah Georgas is here to stay. Her intriguing, rolling, at times haunting tracks are beautiful inside and out, and I have no doubt this record will accompany you throughout the year from hazy August days to long solitary transit rides. Finally a record both poets and pop-heads can appreciate.
