Grammy nominated contributor gears up for her debut
Georgi Kay’s new video premiering at EARMILK
October 16th, 2018 — Georgi Kay is a bit of a legend. She’s performed on a Grammy nominated single, been nominated and won a number of songwriting awards, and is scheduled to head out on tour with Peter, Bjorn & John. The first single for her new record, Where I Go To Disappear, premiered at Billboard, and we’ve got the video for her second single premiering at EARMILK. “Toxins” is a smoldering pop song, with a pulsing rhythm section, and glistening synths that recall Oneohtrix Point Never, backdropping Kay’s iconic vocal.
The Tess O’Connor directed video depicts a swaggering Kay in stark black & white wandering a desolate suburb. The still, almost movie-set like quality of an empty suburb has a certain unsettling effect a la American Beauty that perfectly compliments the tracks brooding synths. EARMILK called it “..a haunting but infectious indie-pop track that you can’t help but keep hitting repeat.”
Georgi Kay on “Toxins” –
“This song is about the toxicity of insecurities and the Jekyll & Hyde nature in which those insecurities can coexist in a seemingly confident person. The light/ dark scenes in the video reflect this almost bipolar nature.”
