Aussie darling Georgi Kay is back once again to give us the gift of sweet electronic beats. Preferring to write, sing, play, and produce all of her own material, this self proclaimed “lone wolf” has exploded onto LA’s dark electronic scene in the year since her migration to SoCal. In her quest to become fully assimilated, Kay has crushed some of LA’s favorite venues, including The Echo, The Mint, and The Hi Hat. Having caught her fantastic School Night set at the Bardot in August, we at GUM couldn’t be more excited to hear her first new release since the summer.
Georgi Kay’s brand new song, “Guilty Pleasures,” is yet another example of her cool, effortless sound, and it’s easy to forget that the track is produced with nothing but synths and a drum track. No other instrumentation is necessary, as the song is full of incredibly catchy hooks which compliment Kay’s smoky voice flawlessly. A classic story of forbidden attraction, the lyrics capture the captivating torment of not being able to fully have the object of one’s desire: “We lie in separate beds / guilty pleasures in our heads / when you dream I’ll meet you there.” Backed by a bass line which, alone, could seduce the strongest of wills, the track is an irresistible exploration of love, lust, and everything in between.
