Acclaimed indie-pop songstress Hannah Georgas debuts a new, original single and video titled “That Emotion” today. The song is a first glimpse of her forthcoming collaboration with producer and multi-instrumentalist Aaron Dessner, best known as a founding member of Grammy Award-nominated band The National and for his production work with artists like Sharon Van Etten, Frightened Rabbit, This Is The Kit and Local Natives.
With an endless capacity for crafting textured pop songs that confound her audience’s expectations, Georgas captivates once again with an expertly designed arrangement that draws in listeners and showcases her unwavering vocal ability, and deeply honest, contemplative lyrics. “’The song is a portrait of one particular way that emotions can build up inside,” Georgas explains. “You’re going through the motions, suppressing how you really feel, and pretending things are ok — but your body knows…that deep down life and worry can weigh you down in ways your head might not acknowledge. This song was inspired by the feeling of hiding emotions you would like to express but feeling alone.”
