Review by Daniel Luckhoff-Wessels
Soft Funk, Georgie Femme’s latest single, brings genres together in a surprisingly refreshing way.
Georgie Femme’s Soft Funk brings together the silkiness of smooth jazz and the energy of old-school funk, finding the sweet spot between the two perfectly.
Georgie McBurnie’s sultry voice oozes confidence as she tastefully moulds these two genres into something unique and characterful. The bass and rhythm guitars bring the funk in an excited but controlled way, like an after-party in an apartment block, while the steady, reliable drums and McBurnie’s voice combine to bring a touch of jazz-flavoured class.
Taking a chance and not worrying about the consequences has never sounded this easy. With the band supporting her, McBurnie sings like somebody who can read your mind and knows how to ease your insecurities in an instant. The song flows with a disarming kind of confidence that instantly creates the feeling of being in a safe, comfortable space.
A tastefully constructed song, Soft Funk keeps the groove going while also creating a sense of freedom for anyone who listens to it.
