CLAIRE GEORGE Announces Debut EP on Cascine + Shares “Orbits” Video

Today Claire George announces her debut EP Bodies of Water, out November 16th on Cascine. Across the EP’s five self-written and self-produced tracks, Claire George combines an imaginative melodic sensibility with swirling electronic productions, crafting a compelling, dreamy and singularly captivating first release. Pre-order the EP HERE.

To celebrate the EP’s announcement, Claire George shares the music video today for lead single “Orbits,” a low-key pop jewel which was previously released via a Kitsuné compilation in partnership with the NBA. “‘Orbits’ reflects on a relationship that feels like trying to push together the negative poles of two magnets; it seems as though they’ll never quite meet, and the closer they draw together, the stronger the counterforce becomes,” Claire George explains of the song. “I wanted the video to explore the idea of an impossible encounter. The characters are in different realities: one in which time moves backwards, and one in which time behaves normally. The two people are searching for each other, and in doing so, miss the window in which they could potentially find one another.” Watch “Orbits” via Gorilla vs. Bear HERE.

Claire’s voice may be familiar to some through her work as a vocal topliner in the electronic space, or as the lead singer for San Francisco act HEARTWATCH, but this project sees Claire turn her focus inward. Seeking space and seclusion, she left the Bay Area in 2016 for a quieter setting outside Seattle, near where she grew up. “At the same time my band split, I went through a break-up and a series of family traumas, quit my job, and left my community in San Francisco,” she said. “I had always been an extrovert, so living in isolation for a year and a half was a huge change for me. It was a period of solitude unlike any other I had ever experienced in my life.” As a songwriter, she was used to having other voices in the room, but this was the first time she was writing, recording and producing almost entirely on her own. In 2018, she felt the present creative chapter closing and decided to relocate to Southern California to finish the material she had generated over the past two years. The result is the masterfully craftedBodies of Water EP, her most powerful work to date, and an exciting introduction to this up-and-coming artist.
