Hannah Georgas is pleased to share her first new music in three years with new single, ‘This Too Shall Pass’. It launches alongside a Joe Connor directed video, shot in London.
Where Hannah’s last record, 2020’s All That Emotion, was produced alongside Aaron Dessner, her next body of work finds Georgas behind the glass. Joining her are partner Sean Sroka (of Ten Kills The Pack) in a co-production capacity, keenly aided by James McAlister on drums (one of Sufjan Steven’s regular confidantes), Graham Walsh (whose synth and bass regularly peppers records by the likes of Holy Fuck and Metz), and Gabe Wax (Soccer Mommy’s go-to collaborator, but has also worked with War on Drugs, Kurt Vile, and Spoon) whose studio know-how and multi-instrumentalist acumen was a welcome addition to the process.
Ultimately though, Georgas sought to take the reins herself, taking back control of her own destiny, and cutting out too much outside influence. Recorded in Toronto with a treasure trove of analogue equipment and a work ethic that left no idea unturned, ‘This Too Shall Pass’ signals a line in the sand, and the beginning of a new chapter.
Hannah Georgas on ‘This Too Shall Pass’: “I have a lot of internal pep talks, as a way to quiet my own doubts and insecurities. This song is a reflection of that, and a reminder to go a little bit easier on myself.”
Musically, its lo-fi guitar and drums evokes echoes of Soccer Mommy and Lucy Dacus’s barbed alt-rock, and whilst there’s a rough-hewn and deliberately unpolished atmosphere to the song’s energy, Georgas means every note she plays and every word she sings; A low-key indie-pop bop.
