About The Georgia Flood
Groove-heavy and Genre-bending, The Georgia Flood’s music has changed significantly over the years. Their new album People Like Ourselves draws on indelible melodies, clever lyrics, and an infectious energy; weaving together an EP that hits all the right notes. The Atlanta based duo, Lane Kelly and Brooks Mason, are brothers who began playing when they were seven and nine years old. Hustling birthday parties and family reunions the brothers changed sounds numerous times through their teens. Drawing on their exploration of numerous genres, their songwriting channels classic guitar riffs and modern pop sensibilities.
Self-financed the band went into Jason Hoard’s Black Cat Studio early 2016 to put together the seven songs contained within their new EP. Don’t let the EP status fool you though, the band toiled over 30+ tracks to carve out their favorites, coalescing into seven songs that journey through themes of love, good times, and tragedy. “We had a really tough time choosing between a few” explains Brooks, The Georgia Flood’s lead guitar player and singer, “We had so many songs that really brought the listener to amazing moments”.
“Whistle King”, the records prominent single, encompasses much of what the record is about. “On the surface it seems sort of nonsensical and fun but the song really describes how crazy our lifestyle is on the road,” explains Lane, who plays bass “playing in an indie band is a constant state of discovery. Lyrically, Whistle King exemplifies a lot of the exhilaration and frustration.”
Their new album now out, The Georgia Flood will be touring nationwide in 2017. With a dynamic live set, the band intends to bring their music to ears the good old fashioned way, one bar at a time.
