Apparently Mark was busy making music all along. Because mid august he released this ep called Comes a time. The goal was to come again with country, but that idea failed because on this ep we hear a lot of different music styles. The downside is that the ep misses a bit of cohesion but we forgive him, because there are some really nice tracks.
If you try it we would certainly recommend Ode the Rvanna, the opening track. That was written a while ago but the lyrics changed a few times. Eventually the lyrics were based on an Instagram conversation with a landscape photographer from the Faroe Islands. The photographer was called Rvanna. Listening to it we thought about a desolate landscape with misty mountains and a rare bird as the only sign of life. If you need references, think about the atmospheric sound from Daniel Lanois on Acadie.
A song that might instantly charm a lot of people is One a kind. It is demonstrating a more poppy side of Georgsson. The song will make you think about Paul McCartney and that is no coincidence. He wrote the song one Sunday morning after seeing one of the most beautiful women that he’d ever seen walk into a bar the night before. When he was writing it he thought the song needed to sound a bit like McCartney so he asked the help of a friend who wrote the perfect piano –lines to achieve the goal.
A last song we would recommend is Waiting For you. Again it is something completely different, again a more up-time track. We were spontaneously thinking about the almost forgotten 90 ties band The Boo Radleys or even a bit of Mika. We can‘t really explain but we are convinced that with some airplay this song would be picked up by many people. The song is about realizing that it’s time to do what you really need to do, and then actually going ahead and doing it. This song was why Georggson decided to create the ep and we are thankful for the fact that he did it
The ep is released via Last night from Glasgow and can be found on all streaming platforms. If you prefer vinyl -like we do, it is nice to know that there are some rare copies on coloured vinyl for those that order fast.
