Singer and producer George Maple won’t be in one place for more than a few weeks at a time this year; that’s the speed her life is moving at. Since hearing Flume – the fellow Australian whose debut album of sparkly, hyperactive productions is currently taking off all over the world – on the radio for the first time, she’s been caught in a whirlwind that started with her nearly crashing her car, and wound up with her singing on his album. Not to mention, her debut solo track Uphill was one of the most popular pieces of New Music that we posted on Dummy in 2012.
Uphill indicates that George’s own music is earthy and warm, drawing on the yearning inflections in her voice with textural, deep production. We caught up with her to talk about it in the cosy setting of her temporary flat in Hoxton, which is just one place among several that she’ll be calling home over the next twelve months. As well as getting to nose around inside her studio, we also found out about some very exciting Bondax-shaped projects that are looming on the horizon. George Maple will going places in 2013, both literally and figuratively. Stream her single and her collaboration with Flume below, and watch this space.
