Surf punk that somehow turns into old school metal. Featuring one of the best female vocalists in Olympia Washington.

This is from a new band i'm in called GEORGY. We just played our first show last night and it went really well. Up to this point we've been writing a few songs and recording our practice sessions - this demo is pretty much a live take.

Special thanks to Ben H, a MeFi lurk, who recorded us and is helping us set up our shows.

So good! Who is the vocalist? Did she perform in a different band at the Helsing Junction Farm Festival outside Olympia? I feel like I recognize her. If it's the same person, holy shit, she has so much star power packed inside a tiny city.

Welcome to MuFi - please post more!

Oh yeah, it's Emily from Christmas. They've played Helsing the past two years, but sadly are no more.

I realized after I posted that I shouldn't have said "featuring" because actually she fronts the band and straight up writes most of the songs. She's not just an incredible vocalist, but a hell of a songwriter too.

I like the way it sounds like it's going up the lift hill on a rollercoaster and then the car peaks (e.g. at 1:50) and it just comes hurtling back down. Badass.

Had me with the first note. Good stuff. Such a great lofi vibe. That has to be fun to play live.

Well, now you guys need to play at Helsing! I'll be there again this summer. What do you play in the band?

I'm the drummer. A gentleman named Jacob Estep is the guitarist. Emily Beanblossom is on bass.
