When it comes to embedding personal character into one’s musical output, Swedish groupÂ Georgian Waters takes the cake. Since early 2011, they’ve been producing wistful dream-pop that seamlessly parallels their personalities. The act’s latest release, the chic singleÂ Dead In No Time, pulls you through a documentary-type tunnel vision of youthful nostalgia, conjuring visions of running on the beach with a Super 8 and jamming in bedroom studios.
Rummaging through their social media feeds, you’ll notice the frequency of inspiration, photos and videos–all of which appear to be a reflection of the band’s consistent progression. Listening through their young and evolving discography, charming guitar riffs drift in and out between shoegaze-braced vocals that seem to speak of the group’s tragedies and triumphs throughout the years.
Georgian Waters provokes a proper collective of friendliness, youth, and happiness in their work, which seems obvious given the dominance of their personal lives over any other sort of external influence. Itâ€™s relieving to see bands still producing with such an organic quality after releasing multiple albums and having become familiar with the corporate side of the industry.
