Georgie James

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

Georgie James takes the male-female double lead singer dynamic in a completely different direction than my post yesterday. On their Demos At Dance Place, John Davis (Q and Not U) and Laura Burhenn combine the best elements of pop and indie rock to craft memorable songs with bright melodies and compelling lyrics. Whether featuring disco-infused drum beats (“Need Your Needs”) or almost no drums at all (“Aftermath”), their songs will get stuck in your head and not leave for a long, long time.

Back when I lived in Washington, DC, I saw Georgie James play their second show ever and let me tell you, it was incredible. Take my word for it, you should definitely think about going out to see them play when they roll into your town. And while you’re there pick up their E.P., which is only available for purchase at their shows.
