What happens when you pair up an extremely talented artist with an equally talented producer? A pretty damn eccentric track. GEA is set to release her debut album “Pink” soon so we thought we’d review her title track, “Pink”. World-renowned producer Mikko H. Haapoja teams up with Laura Avonius because this world needs more collaborations between two musicians who can get the best out of each other. Too many times we see artists go through the motions to give people what they want to hear instead of what they need to hear.
In this track alone, we get the feel for the entire album as light and airy, full of magic and mystery. We know everyone loves a good mystery, even as simple of a mystery as “Who took the last cookie from the cookie jar?”. All jokes aside, “Pink” is just so serene and relaxing that we feel we are under a cascading waterfall listening to the soothing sounds of water falling to it’s next destination. As if we are travelling through a spiritual journey to find our inner peace.
The title track is only the first road in this long, meaningful journey. The songs are based on a piano led acoustic instrumentations combined with minimalistic electronic arrangements giving room to the authenticity and rawness of emotions and vocals. If you listen carefully, we can listen to them using some forgotten instruments from traditional Finnish folk to create that essential euphoric atmosphere. Get lost with GEA as you prepare for her album, “Pink”.
