Georgia’s latest and third album, Euphoric, features ten songs that showcase the broad spectrum of dance music and saw Georgia stepping out from behind the recording desk, establishing herself as a unique left-field pop artist.
Euphoric is the sound of life and of living in the now rather than escaping it. Here’s what the critics say:
“Euphoric is infused with both big dance bangers and heartfelt songwriting” The Guardian
“A maverick pop talent” Classic Pop
“Undoubtedly Georgia’s best collection of songs yet” Dork 5*
“So impressive” Radio 1’s Clara Amfo
“Shimmering electronica with an innate sense of dance music’s strange duality of euphoria and melancholy” Sunday Times 4*
“Euphoric is a brighter, smoother record for those given to dancing in the daytime” ELLE
“One of our best popstars in my opinion” Apple Music’s Matt Wilkinson
“Dreamy, upbeat reverie…which captures the buzz of new love. She settles for a simple, repeated refrain of “It’s Euphoric,” giving that last word a prismatic luminosity” The New York Times
“A blissfully catchy piece of bubblegum pop” The Times
“Euphoric is another masterful body of work from Georgia” The Quietus
“Euphoric is a hopeful, uplifting record of warm, nature-inspired dance; seizing on intensely painful themes, but unearthing a strange sense of joy within them” Evening Standard
“She was my absolute highlight at Radio 1’s Big Weekend” Radio 1’s Greg James
“Sunshine runs through Georgia’s album” The Sun 4*
“Kaleidoscopic new sonics” Rolling Stone UK 4*
“The record shimmers with an irrepressible pop enthusiasm” DIY 4*
“Truly blissful new track from Georgia” 6 Music’s Lauren Laverne
“Sometimes a pop melody just hits you like a perfect streak of sunlight” Time Out
“A fun return brimming with light” Clash
“A soundtrack for the rush of summer” The Vinyl Factory.
After performances at Reading and Leeds Festival, Georgia shared the video for “Some Things You’ll Never Know”. Talking about the Saturday-night-festival-banger, she says: “Sometimes there’s beauty in what’s left unsaid, and that we can’t control the future – this song relishes that. I want people to dance in the face of life’s uncertainties.“
Directed by MrMr, who have produced videos for Dua Lipa, Harry Styles, WizKid and Wet Leg, the video is a light-hearted look at the often-frustrating world of dating and the power of friendship.
Euphoric was co-produced by Rostam (Haim, Clairo, Carly Rae Jepsen) and marked the first time Georgia worked with another producer on her own material. It follows her club-coercing last record, the universally adored and Mercury Music Prize-shortlisted Seeking Thrills which well and truly cemented her as one of the UK’s premier producers and songwriters. Since then, Georgia has collaborated with the likes of Gorillaz, Shygirl, Baby Tate, Dan Carey and David Jackson, most recently writing on Shania Twain’s #1 album Queen Of Me and with Years & Years’ Olly Alexander.
Euphoric is available to buy on Georgia’s store-exclusive coloured vinyl (w/ mirrorboard sleeve), standard vinyl, cassette, CD and digitally. Buy: Georgia’s store | Digital
