Review by Anna Maria Stjärnell
Georgina “George” Pringle has been causing quite a stir with her spoken word style and her debut album is about to keep it that way.
We Could Have Been Heroes sees her speak/sing of a reality that feels concrete to a choppy backing.
Sparkomatic Miami is a funny, frantic groove for Pringle to spin her tale of vanity against.
LCD I love You But You’re Bringing Me Down references LCD Soundsystem and is quite funny. Pringle’s prim vocals fascinate throughout as on the rest of the album.
Bojour Tristesse is a lengthy, pulsing tune for Pringle to weave her observations against.
She’s certainly on a original path and frequently both pithy and funny. She’s worth checking out.
