Georgia Gets By “Happiness Is An 8 Ball”
Georgia Nott, announces her debut EP as Georgia Gets By, a new sound for the Brood’s member, and includes the artist’s most personal material to date. “After years working collaboratively as BROODS, I wanted to start a project that could be wholly about my experiences,” Georgia says. Fish Bird Baby Boy, due October 6th on Luminelle Recordings, offers us a deepened sense of Nott’s inner world, as she sings about past turmoil and the hard-fought personal growth that led to this transformative moment.
Of the EP’s soaring new single “Happiness Is An 8 Ball,” which arrives today with a video directed by Silken Weinberg (Ethel Cain, Skullcrusher), Georgia says “This song is about using unhealthy coping mechanisms in a desperate attempt to make things work with someone. When love doesn’t bind you anymore and only the pressure to live up to the expectations of a relationship keep you together, you begin to find yourself turning to other means to find the energy to be with them.”
The song’s bass-driven, heavy production choices counteract Nott’s crystalline voice, so clear and composed against the surrounding chaos as she sings of a deteriorating relationship. “I don’t think it’s love/ I don’t think it’s fate,” the chorus goes, as the drums crash and a spry electric guitar motif offers a glimmer of hope amidst desperation.
Nott worked with composer/producer Noah Beresin (Christine & the Queens, Blood Orange, Santigold) on Fish Bird Baby Boy, in addition to enlisting friends she’d made throughout her long professional career like Suzy Shinn (Weezer, Panic! at the Disco, Fitz and the Tantrums) and Seth Paris, and more, to contribute to the EP’s production. “The people you meet in the studio and on tour who you really connect with, you hold on to one another.” Says Nott
