Hannah Georgas is a Canadian musician newly signed to Brassland and our friends at Arts & Crafts. She says of this song: "Over the years I've been recognizing patterns and habits I've created in order to protect myself in situations that are difficult. I'm becoming more aware of how much my upbringing has had an affect on me. This song was inspired by learning how to accept the past and recognize when things come up and trying to learn to from them."
She also had some thoughts on the creation of this recording: "I really love how the production of this song came together in the studio. Aaron and I tried a couple of versions of it before we found this one. I originally wrote it on guitar and I ended up finding a different arrangement for it on the piano. Towards the end of my time with Aaron, we re-recorded this- tracking piano and vocals first. He came up with a repetitive bass line and drum loop. He started playing these beautiful guitar slide parts that felt like whale calls. We were recording it in the evening and I remember listening and looking out the window and seeing a beautiful bright moon and clear dark sky. It was a really memorable and magical moment."
Our first track release from Hannah "That Emotion" got a warm welcome from The FADER, Stereogum, The Line of Best Fit, Exclaim!, and American Songwriter. Here's to much much more coming very very soon...
