She's still lightyears ahead, just having a lot more fun this time around.

Loud and Quiet

Like all the best pop albums, it doesn’t concern itself with being too clever, too cool or too serious, and it conveys that intent brilliantly: raising smiles, moving limbs, hearts aching for something more.

The Skinny

Georgia's new album is filled to the brim with dance touchstones, but with a polished pop sheen.


It’s not quite picture perfect, but ‘Seeking Thrills’ is Georgia’s jubilant and insightful document of the life that moves under the disco lights.


As an embodiment of where one of the UK’s most exciting voices is currently at, you couldn’t ask for much more.


Seeking Thrills is a sophisticated, emotionally complex pop effort that seems to encapsulate the London native's life experiences to date.


Full of energizing rhythms, buoyant beats, and memorable vocal melodies, Seeking Thrills is more than just a set of late-night bangers.

The Guardian

The singer and producer has absorbed Chicago house, Robyn-style pop and dub reggae, and refashioned them into an album about being ‘consumed by night’.

The Independent

Drawing heavily on the Chicago house and Detroit techno of the Eighties, Seeking Thrills is a heady dose of sonic nostalgia.

Under The Radar

This could prove to be one of the sleeper albums of the first months of the new decade, its blend of shamelessly club-ready bangers and astute, dance-history-observant studio-craft likely to please the electronic connoisseurs as much as the pop devotees.


The first great album of a new decade is one that promises to inspire a new generation of clubbers and hedonists with the joy of some of the most perfect pop you could ever hope to hear.

Spill Magazine

Towards the end, things start to blend together, but overall this is an album that one could play start to finish in a party setting and no one would mind.


Although Seeking Thrills is Georgia’s sophomore album, there is a freshness and originality that can only be manifested from pure passion.

Q Magazine

Seeking Thrills is an artfully constructed yet instantly enjoyable tribute to dancefloor deliverance in all its forms.


When Georgia dives headfirst into dance music, as she does for much of Seeking Thrills, she finds her most exciting self.


The overwhelming result ... is an emotive work that, as the title suggests, leaves you permanently seeking thrills long after the initial listen.

Northern Transmissions

As far as snapshotting the essence of that undeniably great feeling of stepping out with your mates and being at one with the dancefloor, Georgia has found that thrill we largely all seek out.

The Line of Best Fit

The huge themes and inspirations Georgia plays with in Seeking Thrills showcase a true rising star of British pop.


It's balanced, catchy and broad in scope. Each song stands out as its own unique piece of the puzzle, a quality that is easy to lose on electro-pop albums.


The stellar opening exchanges are mostly good enough to carry the album across the finish line and confirm that Georgia, five years after stepping into the limelight, is now more in control of her own sound than on her debut.

Crack Magazine

Seeking Thrills is at its best ... when heading full pelt through pop euphoria.


Seeking Thrills has the ascendent energy of an audition tape; brighter and less tentative than her self-titled 2015 debut, even its awkward moments convey earnest, self-taught sincerity.

The Observer

On her second album, a rhythmic rush of club-pop, the London producer extols the merits of clean living and a clear head.

I can see the influences that this album comes from, names like Robyn, M.I.A. and others are the inspiration behind this I'm sure. Well, I liked it quite a lot, seems like the type of music that could be playing in any "edgy party scene" in indie movies haha
This was by no means an offensively bad album, and I did most certainly pull some enjoyable elements from it. There were some really good grooves at times, and it gave that "fun" vibe which is usually what I want to get from a dance / electropop album. However, the vocals felt very flat and uninteresting for most of the album, and the album does start to feel very tired and repetitive after about the halfway mark. This wasn't to say it became a bad experience, it just wasn't one I ... read more
"Seeking Thrills" is a perfectly fine synthpop album with some decent writing and a few great, even slightly experimental, cuts. Unfortunately, the vocals don't shine very brightly and the generic moments fall flat on their face.

Fav Tracks: Started Out, Ultimate Sailor, Honey Dripping Sky, Ray Guns, Till I Own It, Never Let You Go

Least Fav Tracks: Mellow, 24 Hours

Since this was getting fairly positive reviews i decided to peep this record. I saw her genre tags and immediately was interested because i love electro/synth pop. Coming out of this record i feel pretty satisfied! There are some cuts on here that re just fun, vibrant and beautiful. Some tracks on this record do feel half baked. Towards the middle of the album i start losing interest but i really do like Georgias sound. I think shes a good artist and i definitely want to check out her other ... read more
if you wanna listen to a pop album that aint trynna be a copycat of all other pop mainstream/generic albums (like rare by selena that also came out jan 10) then this is the right album for ya. this aint perfect but it's much better than most of the pop shit that plays on the radio nowadays.
