GEORGE MOIR ON SOCIALS
Following the release of his debut EP ‘Spare Room’, with playlisting of its first single ‘Blame’ on Radio X and support on BBC Radio 1, George Moir has shared the visuals for his latest single ‘People Pleaser’. STREAM HERE.
‘Spare Room’ is out now via Infectious Music (Alt-J, DMA’s, Rejjie Snow) STREAM HERE.
Animated entirely by himself over 500 hours, the visuals for ‘People Pleaser’ are melancholic yet bright and beautiful, and nod to George’s childhood which was largely spent with his father who was a beekeeper.
“The video follows a very distorted narrative of my move away from my hometown down to Plymouth.” George explains, “A lot of the visuals are pulled from very fond memories of mine, like camping with friends, or skating around the countryside. There’s also a heavy focus on apiculture – my dad has always kept bees, and made it his full time gig when I was a kid, so it was a huge part of growing up for me to help out during honey harvest season, so I had to put them in the video as it was such a great bit of visual for the song.”
The pensive ambient electronic soul of ‘People Pleaser’ is taken off George’s debut EP ‘Spare Room’, which showcases the songwriter’s expansive and bold craftsmanship through innovative neo-soul, wonky pop and glimmers of R&B and jazz.
The core of George’s creative world is built upon quirks that hark back to his unconventional upbringing, including being born on a honey farm and growing up with seven siblings, who were homeschooled without technology. Spending time on hands-on activities meant he could perfect his music and art, and it’s these little oddities in his music that cement George as a conscientious and intriguing artist creating music for the soul in a world that’s all of his own making.
