British electro-pop musician Georgia Barnes (daughter of Leftfield
's Neil Barnes) began playing drums at an early age and eventually studied ethnomusicology at London’s School of Oriental and African Studies.
She started her musical career as a session drummer, working with several offbeat British pop artists including Kwes.
, and JUCE
. Encouraged by the support from her collaborators, she began working on her own material, and JUCE
's Cherish Kaya released Georgia's debut EP Come In on Kaya Kaya Records
in 2014. The EP introduced Georgia's distinctive (and unmistakably British) brand of underground pop, which combined influences such as grime and post-punk, recalling the startling impact that M.I.A.
had on the music scene upon their debuts. In 2015, Georgia contributed to Leftfield
's long-awaited third album Alternative Light Source, singing on "Universal Everything." Domino
signed Georgia that year and released her self-titled debut full-length in August. ~ Paul Simpson, Rovi
