Ever-engaging and perpetually cutting-edge, indie shapeshifter Georgia Fields wows with elegant ease on her bold new track Holding My Hands Out, available now on all streaming platforms. “It’s a song about that primal desire we all have to be held. It’s about reaching your hands out for comfort, but grasping at shadows.” A magnetic showing of fearless art-pop and searing vulnerability, Holding My Hands Out is the latest insight into Georgia’s upcoming third full-length album Hiraeth, due later this year.
- Celestial Seasonings Bengal Chai tea, with almond milk. It’s spicy, and sweet, and you can mix it with black loose leaf tea if you want the flavour-kick with some caffeine as well.
- E.T. It’d just be really great to meet him.
- A glass armonica – it uses the same principle as rubbing a crystal wine glass, but instead of making one glass “sing”, it has a keyboard and a motor that spins the glass for you, so you can activate multiple notes at once. Prices start at about US$8,000 – but that includes a travel case!
- A 70mm telescope pointed at the belts of Jupiter.
- A specific funding stream for working Mums in the music industry. Ie. touring support that includes child care access fees; funding for the creation of new work; a bursary for musician-mothers to rent a studio space or office to work from outside their home for a year; mentoring specific to the demands of being an indie musician and a primary carer.
- A custom tailored linen suit by Anna Cordell Clothing – with an extra wide leg, and extra wide lapels. I’m tall and high-waisted pants are never high-waisted enough… Except with Anna!
- A tub of the handmade turkish delight ice-cream I bought from a little stall at Major’s Creek Folk Festival in 2018.
- 8 hours sleep, for 7 nights in a row. I haven’t slept like that since 2014!
- The Melba Spiegeltent, relocated to my backyard, and repurposed as an ice-skating rink. Local four piece Imperial Leather are permanently installed as the house band. There is also a snow cone machine.
- Bjork. I have so many questions for her.
