Hear This: Georgia Strait - Georgia Straits
Share This Article:
New Canadian group Georgia Straits hit all the right notes, but are relatively unheard of as of yet. Georgia Straits is a band consisiting of four friends. Ian Winkler and Dan Gillis both on guitars and lead vocals, Logan Barr on keyboard and Josh Radley on drums and providing backing vocals. They are self described as having 'taken the Kingston music scene by storm' with their fresh indie sound. The group performed their first show in September 2016 and are improving with each day. We'll no doubt be hearing a lot more from them in the future. 'Georgia Strait' opens on the rhythmic beat of drums before the tune really starts to kick in. The introduction of each layer of music before the vocals start creates a great beat that continues throughout the song. The track evokes an energetic indie sound with the gruff vocals singing "my darling, my darling Georgia Strait, I swear I will find a way to make you shake." The lyrics and vocals contribute to the overall confidence of the sound that ends with an abrupt stop. You can now find 'Georgia Strait' on Spotify and can listen to the bands other tracks on Soundcloud.
