Get a fresh dose of local electronic beats featuring Georgia Mae, Capre & Quintessential Doll
 
Georgia Mae
This girl has music industry cred. As well as being nominated as Most Promising Female Songwriter at the 2016 Queensland Music Awards held in March, her debut single ‘Keeper of the Key’ has made it as a finalist. Audiences at her Brisbane shows may be unaware that Georgia Mae is a qualified sound engineer and producer with breadth and depth of instrumental expertise. Although only 22, she has a degree in Music Technology from the Queensland Conservatorium, and music that she has composed, recorded and produced features in films screened at Cannes Film Festival and a plethora of American TV shows. From her Brisbane home studio, Georgia Mae works remotely with Los Angeles Film and TV music companies, and has collaborated with legendary UK producer Stuart Epps. With a vocal range that exceeds three octaves, she moonlights as a member of The Australian Voices – the southern hemisphere’s premier choir. In 2015, she was selected as one of eleven Telstra Road to Discovery semi- finalists and had the privilege of attending Boot Camp alongside Australia’s leading music industry professionals.
Working across the music spectrum has inspired Georgia Mae’s distinctive new brand of electronic pop, the reinvention of her live shows, and her upcoming EP. With ‘Time With You’, she has unleashed the bold enigmatic sound of 2020.

Capre
The evolution of Brisbane based electronic duo Capre was organic in its inception, nurtured by lazy days spent experimenting with synths, guitars and kits. These preliminary sessions, full of brooding energy, paved the way for a slew of steady online releases, which quickly garnered the attention of a number of blogs (The Sick Pitch, Whono’s), broadcasts (SBS, HuffPost) and radio stations (Triple J, 4ZZZ). Positive feedback was received from a number of industry professionals. Dave Ruby Howe from Triple J dubbed their initial efforts as “intelligent beatmaking” with “some really lovely tones” and Morgan Ammar from The Sick Pitch noted the “…dreamy pads, subtle string arrangements and beautiful vocals.” Capre’s debut EP, Cassette Mixte, dropping in June 2015, sees the duo continuing to draw inspiration from their electronic roots, while applying and embracing their love of hip-hop and rock. The result is a soulful blend of guitar haikus layered over crooning vocals, juxtaposed with provocatively rapped lyrics and progressive forms. Plug into a decent set of speakers, sit back and let Capre take you on a sonically vast expedition.

Quintessential Doll
Quintessential Doll is the solo project of Steph Linsdell.
 
A fiercely independent artist, Quintessential Doll produces, writes, records and performs her own music. After graduating from university with a classical music degree, Linsdell worked on honing her songwriting and producing craft by under the guise of Quintessential Doll by drawing on her love of a wide variety of musical influences (Bat for Lashes, Grimes, FKA Twigs, Alt-J, Imogen Heap, Son Lux, East India Youth) as well as her background in classical piano and violin. This, combined with lyrics that reflect the influence of myth and literature in her story-telling, result in what the artist describes as industrial folktronica. Her soundscape consists of brooding synths, atmospheric strings, driving guitar, pulsing beats and ethereal harmonies framed with evocative poetry. The multi- instrumentalist’s live performances see her display her versatility and dexterity as she sings, plays instruments and manipulates electronic elements.
 
Her single Live Like I’m Dying from the Let Not the Monsters Destroy Me EP (2014) garnered her a Queensland Music Award, and she released 2 follow up singles in 2015: Thunder Gods featuring the operatic vocals of Canadian collaborator Clio Em, and Saccharine (Rework) accompanied by an enigmatic music video. These releases served to prove the artist’s sense of self-assurance in her sonic and stylistic direction.
 
Quintessential Doll’s latest release is ‘Beautiful Violence’.
