TUNE Seagoth - Tricky Feeling
'Tricky Feeling' is taken from Seagoth's new EP 'Internet Cafe'.
18 year old British bedroom pop singer/songwriter Georgia Ochoa has been creating music under the name Seagoth since 2015, and she emerged onto the scene in 2019 with her debut EP 'House Party for Ghosts'. The debut album was produced by Georgia alone in her bedroom using only Garageband on her iPhone and a cheap Stratocaster. She has now kicked off 2020 with the release of her sophomore EP ‘Internet Cafe’; a five track piece of work which exhibits a growth and development in her sound that proves that she’s one of the most intriguing upcoming acts around. The EP sees Georgia experimenting with sampling, and ripening her entirely self-made work into something even more provocative.
Seagoth’s indie/dream pop sound has been inspired by various artists, including The Smiths, Declan Mckenna and Wallows, and also evokes thoughts of Frankie Cosmos and Snail Mail. Georgia's existential songwriting contrasts with her sparkly synths and dreamy guitar riffs creating a sweet balance between too sad and too happy. Her lyrics touch on various meaningful topics, including firsthand experiences and current topics in the media. The track 'Cool!' was written in angst by the songwriter about the romanticisation of mental illness online and is her favourite song to play.
Georgia has said of the EP: “‘Internet Cafe’ is a saga of me feeling sorry for myself. It’s a bunch of lofi-pop tracks that my feelings have physically manifested into. Instead of crying in the shower I’ll write a synth melody, and then cry in the shower. It's also my first ever EP that I've produced on a computer and mastered myself.”
“I released two singles before the EP was announced, ‘Internet Cafe’ and ‘Ballad for the End of the World’. These tracks contrast lyrically and melodically. ‘Internet Cafe’ is a simplistic, upbeat, bedroom-pop-style, existential track regarding social media and its impact on lives, while ‘Ballad for the End of the World’ is a downbeat dreamy, existential track regarding the inevitable extinction of earth. I wanted these two tracks released first as they represent the EP as a whole. The heartbreaking, downbeat tracks among the danceable-lightheaded tracks with a constant underlying element of dread. We all know the world is ending and I’m just singing about it.”
