Fresh from the release of his recent single ‘How Are You Feeling?’, singer / songwriter George O’Hanlon returns with new song ‘Seagulls’, the title track from his forthcoming EP, out May 13th.
‘Seagulls’ is a particularly poignant song for George. Dealing with the subject of schoolyard alienation, the track is a heavy reflection (both sonically and thematically) on the feelings of isolation and confusion that can come to you at that delicate age when you’re first starting to express yourself.
“Seagulls is a song I wrote reflecting on my time in school. It’s a song for all the lonely, frustrated kids both past and present staring out the window.”
Inspired by the likes of Bob Dylan, Jeff Buckley and Thom Yorke, Georges' song writing is both literary and deeply personal, incorporating his own life experiences into his work while framing them from different perspectives.
George has spent the last few years refining his playing and song writing and is now ready to share his talent with the world. Following a few early gigs on the college circuit, George expanded out into a series of shows at grassroots venues, adding additional players to his live show and honing his live performance. Last September George embarked on his first UK tour of small venues around the country with his band.
2022 see's George playing a variety of festivals including Liverpool Sound City, Eastbound Festival, The Great Escape, TRSMT and 110 Above. George will also be headlining a special show at the legendary Camden Assembly (formally the Barfly) on the 26th April.
