Georgia Lines is delighted to donate music stream is a preview of his new EP, Human. “I hope you like it as much as I liked making it,” she said.
Human follows Lines’ self-titled debut EP, released in March 2020. The Mount Maunganui artist released a handful of standalone singles over the following years of pandemic-induced isolation, including house music influenced by ‘No One Knows ‘ and the slow-burning emotion forged, ‘Call Me By My Name’.
Georgia Lines: “human” track by track
The first track of the EP is “Save Me”. “It’s about that feeling where you’re in a relationship and you’re feeling frustrated with your own emotions and feelings and you’re crying out for help,” Lines explains.
The second track, “Nothing But Love”, originated during a last-minute writing trip to Australia, where Lines worked with producer Xavier Dunn (Jack River, Arno Faraji). “‘Nothing But Love’ is a song about me traveling and being so far away from my husband and feeling the strain of learning to love from a distance,” Lines says.
The third track from the Prince-inspired EP, “Faith,” is one of Lines’ absolute favorites. “It’s 90s, there’s a lot of synth,” she says. “There are voice overs, it’s fun – there’s a lot going on and I love it.”
Next is “Moon Soda,” a duet with New Zealand singer Alex James. This is the first duet that Lines recorded. “I love that it’s a duo,” she says. “I like there to be a conversation happening musically.”
The final song on Human is ‘Leave Behind’, a particularly moving song for Lines. “It’s about losing my dad, my grandfather, two years ago now,” she says. The song is like a diary entry. “It’s my grief, my dealing with the loss and having to deal with all of these feelings and emotions.”
