about

What people are saying about 'Destroy' EP

"Destroy is another belter - a brilliantly overwrought, theatrical show-stopper of a song" - Record Of The Day

What people have said about Georgia Wonder's debut EP 'Hello Stranger'

"..one Grey's Anatomy soundtrack appearance away from being an international hit single" - Pop Justice

"This strikingly beautiful track from Georgia Wonder leaped out when we first heard it. A simple, restrained, haunting ballad which sounds classic but not dated" - Record Of The Day / Record Of The Week

"What a beautiful track..." - Bob Harris, BBC Radio 2

About Georgia Wonder

Georgia Wonder's first ever gig was in a lesbian club for a Tsunami fundraiser at which they were largely ignored. However, after winning various local radio demo panels and doing a live set on BBC Southern Counties they sent a demo to Bob Harris on Radio Two, who played their songs on his Saturday night show twice in two weeks thinking they were album tracks.

Soon after that they were invited to open for Mick Hucknall on his UK tour where they played in front of 14,000 people in a week. Using the tour as a springboard for their debut EP 'Hello Stranger' their song 'Girl You Never Knew' won praise from fans and critics alike, securing 'Record Of The Day' and 'Record Of The Week' on the ROTD tipsheet, a well respected barometer for emerging artists. The song was also Record Of The Day on Pop Justice, who called it '..one Grey's Anatomy soundtrack appearance away from being an international hit single.'

The video for 'Girl You Never Knew', shot on a budget of next to nothing and featuring lead vocalist Stephanie simply singing to the camera, was immediately picked up by Bliss TV who started playing it several times a day.

Georgia Wonder were chosen as a spotlight artist on We7 in September 2008 where all five tracks from their debut EP were in the top 10 downloads for the week with 'an exceptional response.'

The band performed a historic gig at the London American Embassy at the 2008 election night party alongside Glen Tillbrook from Squeeze and this year performed at the US Ambassadors house in London for the 4th July celebrations. Also this year they were invited to host two panels at the first ever All2gether Now music conference Berlin alongside Amanda Palmer.

Georgia Wonder's DIY approach to their music has also been noticed, having being nominated for an interactive award for their 'Hello Stranger' CD campaign where they scattered their debut EP across the UK for people to find. They also became the 14th most shared band on the planet in January 2009 after using P2P technology to distribute 50,000 EPs in four days.

Track Name: Genius
Well I know that you would never leave me
But when I'm alone you're always on my mind
If the cruel cruel world tries to deceive me
A picture of you is always by my side

Is it wrong that I go on believing
Or better to hurt than slowly fade away?
In the night my heart is slowly bleeding
But thinking a you has brightened up my day

It’s so beautiful
It’s so fine
It’s so genius
In my mind
It’s so beautiful
I could cry
There’s such a lot of love in this world
I could die

There's a light that shines outside my window
And every day it shines a little more
As the moon and stars begin to whisper
Speaking your name
Wind knocking on my door

‘Cos I hear your voice across the ocean
Riding away across a distant sea
And I know that one thing is for certain
Believing in you is more than just a dream

Chorus
Track Name: Love About You
You can learn to love me if you try
Learn to make a change and come on by
You can learn to love me if you have a change of heart and start again

You can learn to mend these broken wings
Learn to hear the song that my heart sings
You can learn to love me when you've learn to love yourself all over again
Yeah, you'll know then 'cos

All of the world is with you
Singing along to bring you here right now
You've got the love about you
Nobody though it could be
Never believed it would be right somehow
But you've got the love about you now

You can learn to love me if you try
Learn to live a life and not a lie
You can learn to love me if you take the time to see you're mine again

You can learn to see me as I am
Learn to be the one understands
You can learn to love me if you learnt to love yourself all over again
Yea, you'll know then ‘cos

All of the world is with you
Singing along to bring you here right now
You've got the love about you
Nobody though it could be
Never believed it would be right somehow
But you've got the love about you now

'Cos you've got the love
You got the love
The one you got will always be enough
If you learn to be yourself and love comes knocking on the inside
Then you'll know that you've got the love about you
Track Name: Two Weeks To Live
Good morning Mr Macaloon and how are you today?
There’s little in the way of explanation
It’s getting pretty crowded and we really need the space
And you came up again in conversation

We’ve looked at everything you’ve done and how you’ve lived your life
We’ve made the necessary calculations
It seems as if you haven’t spent the time as well you should
You’ve even been quite lazy on occasions

Two weeks to live
Two weeks to live
Two weeks to live
Two week to live in

Two week to die
Two weeks to day goodbye
Or two weeks to try
And start living

And all the colours seem much lighter now
And all the stars are shining brighter now
And all the wasted opportunities
Are rising up and looking new to me

And it’s been so long since I breathed in the air
And I’ve been so wrong not to take what was there
And I swear I’m gonna live

Good morning Mr Macaloon and how are you today?
We're sorry but there's little explanation
It's getting pretty crowded and we really have to face
That sometimes there's just too much information

We hope you understand that we are doing all we can
It's simply an administrative error
We hope you'll be accepting our humble apology
'Cos it looks as if you're gonna live forever
Track Name: Cool Again
Day to day is all that I can do
The only way that I can muddle through
And this loneliness is nothing less
Than waiting for the rain
When love is cool again

Wishing never works, no one ever hears
Crying in the night, fighting off the tears

But this loneliness is nothing less
Than waiting for the rain
When love is cool again

Keep on talking to myself
But I'm not getting nothing back
There's someone else inside my head
Screaming like a maniac

Calling out the same old question
Time and time again
Why d'you go and stop the rain?

Turn to dust whenever I’m alone
See the rust, my shine is nearly gone

And this loneliness is nothing less
Than waiting for the rain
When love is cool again
Track Name: Destroy
Hush now baby dry your tears
We were good for seven years
But honey these are different days
Now everything is split two ways

And if you thinking you're moving on
Well you got that wrong
Even though my smile is sweet
You can sing a different song
But it won't be long
Till you're marching to my beat

I will destroy you
I will make your gain my own
I will destroy you
I will reign your heart alone until you're heartless
I will destroy you
I will turn you upside down
I will destroy you
Kick your face into the ground and pray for darkness
'Cos you had it all coming

People say you're doing well
But honey they can go to hell
There will be no one to save
When tears become a tidal wave

'Cos if you think you've got it made
You should be afraid
When there's nothing I can't break
All the pieces of your heart
Can be pulled apart
I have made I can unmake

Chorus

I will cast your shallow hope
Into a sea of sorrow
Pull your dreams onto a shore
Where there is no tomorrow
Drag your soul across the sand
Until you're just a shell
Then pat you on the head and wish you well
