Dubbed “a new generation’s Feist”, acclaimed indie-pop singer Hannah Georgas has returned from her recent high-profile support slots with The National and released a compelling, atmospheric new song.
Same Mistakes is the second single produced by Aaron Dessner of The National, and it’s a collaboration that’s bound to create some impressive pieces of work. After the release of her previous song, That Emotion, in March, Same Mistakes follows on the same thread of delving into Georgas’ emotional complexities, creating a lyrically and emotionally evocative track.
This is Georgas at her most vulnerable lyrically and sees her dealing with the reckoning of her past mistakes and breaking free from destructive habits. Same Mistakes carries with it a heartbeat of emotion that comes across in the silky vocals that seem to float smoothly over the sparse, clean arrangement of music.
Accompanied by a piano and touch of slide guitar that glides in and out, the resulting sound creates an air of melancholia. Same Mistakes has an almost soothing feel to it that is beautifully fused together with the hypnotic throb of drum and bass. There is a soft meditative tone to this song that’s almost so intimate and reflective you feel like you are intruding on some of Georgas’ deepest secrets.
These musical capabilities have taken Same Mistakes to another level, with an element of therapeutic songwriting and honesty that shines through her work. Same Mistakes has a refreshingly calming touch to it that’s bound to ease some of your self-isolation blues. Check it out; you’re in for a treat.
