Georgia Mooney utilised two beautiful instruments – a piano and a dulcimer – to play three equally beautiful tracks from her intoxication debut album for her ‘In My Room’ session.
The All Our Exes Live in Texas member released her first solo album, Full of Room, in August.
In a highly positive review of the gorgeous art-pop collection, Rolling Stone AU/NZ wrote: “Georgia Mooney’s album is not going to work as background noise. From its opening bars, the first song, “War Romance”, cuts through, drawing your ears and attention away from whatever else you were doing.
“Then Mooney’s haunting voice takes over, “Dear circumstance, it always starts with you…” It feels like the music, and in particular the vocals, are all around you, which is both intoxicating and a little unnerving.”
The Australian also gave a glowing review, hailing the album as “nothing short of a triumph” and “completely enthralling.”
For her ‘In My Room’ session, Mooney first performed “Nothing Is Forever” on the dulcimer, a track “about how the patriarchy is surely doomed.”
After a brief interlude to discuss her dulcimer (“a lot of people stop me in airports to ask where it’s from”), Mooney broke into “What an Inconvenience”, revealing that the track is “about when somebody is already married.” Mooney then took to her piano for her last performance, a lovely rendition of another album highlight, “Consider It a Gift”.
There’s plenty of opportunities to catch Mooney live over the coming months. She’ll tour the East Coast at the beginning of December in a triple bill alongside Portair and Laura Lucas, followed by a supporting slot for Kate Miller-Heidke around regional Australia through between January and March (tour information here).
