Hannah Georgas: Evelyn

Hannah Georgas-- "Evelyn’" (Dine Alone): This is the latest single from the acclaimed singer/songwriter’s recent album For Evelyn, produced by Holy Fuck’s Graham Walsh. 

The evocative video is directed by Sammy Rawal (The New Pornographers, Metric) and funded by MuchFACT.

In a press release, Rawal says, “I kept envisioning that specific rooftop location of the TIFF Lightbox in my head.  I loved how graphic and unconventional it was...perched up on top of the city.  I knew it would be a perfect visual balance for the type of performance video I imagined.  It's minimal design and neutral grey colour would offset the beat-driven edit, dance sequences and Hannah's wardrobe perfectly.  I really wanted to play with pattern, repetition, looping and scale with this video."

"For me, it almost feels like this army of Hannah clones assembling high above the city in the clouds, and marching confidently forward across an urban landscape.” 

The song itself is an appealing combination of insistent beats underneath her clear and effective vocals.

Georgas recently sold out a London, UK, headline show as part of The Great Escape 2017’s three-day-run of gigs in East London. 

She is out touring as a support act for both Wintersleep and Hey Rosetta! in December and headlines her own show at Toronto’s Mod Club on Dec. 7. Check her tour dates here.
