Written by Amy Cooper AKA ACRONYM. The ambient electro-pop nature that GEA has released on her EP called ‘Snow’ will help you carry magic with you inside your own mind, and if you’re a fan of ‘Game of Thrones,’ GEA’s music might just keep you on that high that the show provides.
Not to get it confused with a fan-album, GEA has never watched the show, but friends and listeners pinpointed the title track “Snow,” many believed that it could have been part of the show, especially with the title and Jon Snow. GEA says, “Following the light of Agnes Obel, I was apparently led to drink from the same spring of inspiration as the writers of the series. It is also unplanned coincidence that we are releasing this EP at the same time as GOT’s final season is airing.”
She does clear up the meaning behind the title track of the EP, “Snow,” which was a song that was crafted to honor someone close to her that died.
“This EP is also influenced a lot by a death of a friend. A young boy, who at the age of three told to his mom that he has come to this world to be a snow angel. During a tragic December night he died on the first snow at age of thirteen, next to my home. I wrote the song In Memoriam to honor his life. I cried at the studio when we recorded it and it still brings tears into my eyes. I hope this song brings comfort to endless sorrow of his parents and friends, everyone who knew him.”
One of the big inspirations of GEA’s music is Danish songwriter Agnes Obel, and GEA felt that her music energized her drive to become a better songwriter, producer, and artist.
The single “Time” was featured on multiple radio stations across the world, and GEA was listed as one of the best female-led showcases at SXSW. The dreamy pop vibes from GEA are for fans of Bjork, Sigur Ros, and a dash of Imogen Heap.
