WE REVIEW THE NEW SINGLE FROM GEORGIE BOYD – WHAT’S THAT FEELING?
Fresh on the scene singer-songwriter Georgie Boyd has just released his first single with Marquee Records. Despite being a debut, What’s That Feeling? is a masterfully crafted track with perfectly balanced layers to get lost in.
This song radiates 70s vibes, from the muted brown and orange tones on the artwork, to the hearty guitar riff rolling throughout. Boyd’s writing possesses a distinctive, laid-back warmth that’s easy in every aspect of listening; a characteristic found in the best music of that period.
Certain minute details nod to Boyd’s influences, like the recognisable tonal fluttering in the background made famous by the 13th Floor Elevators. Though quiet, these subtleties add a depth to the song that pushes it beyond simply a rocking guitar track. It’s inspired.
Meanwhile, at the forefront of the tune, Boyd harnesses his compelling vocal abilities to convey a political commentary rooted in making one’s voice heard above the thousands of others. He sings rallying words like “we were born to make noise/use your voice/you ain’t got a choice”, attempting to ignite the spark of change with his music.
Above all, What’s That Feeling? is a tune that’s pleasant to listen to. There’s no doubt about Boyd’s writing and playing talents, which shine bright in his debut. He intends on sharing this and more in upcoming live performances, with dates soon to be announced.
