Already right at the top of the list of our fave covers, Georgia has released her cover of Kate Bush’s classic ‘Running Up That Hill’.

“Closing my live sets with ‘Running Up That Hill’ has been a pure joy, and it sparked the idea to record it,” Georgia says. “But, it didn’t start there, Kate Bush has been part of my life and a major influence on my work since I could sing a note. Her music was always played by both my mum and dad, and when I began to understand the way that sound and production worked, I embarked on my own intimate and personal journey with her music. For me, it was more than just a cover, it was emotional, and an experience I’ll always treasure.”

Accompanied by a fab video, featuring contemporary dancer (and Georgia’s brother) Sid Barnes, Sid adds, “It has always been my dream to somehow find a way to create a dance for a Kate Bush song. This project with my sister, Georgia, came as both a privilege and an exciting challenge!. The goal was to try and touch upon Kate’s spirit, to try and not just reproduce her as an icon, but rather use dance to find an even deeper connection to her work.”
