Watch: Georgia Ruth – Fossil Scale

Georgia Ruth - Fossil ScaleWatch the new video from Georgia Ruth for Fossil Scale, the title track and first single from Georgia’s upcoming album released on the 7th October.

Fossil Scale was written in Caernarfon, a town in North Wales defined by its space and tranquil landscape that Georgia, at the time, called home. The ancient surroundings of the town, its body of water and the neighbouring Snowdonia mountains, came to exert as strong a bearing on Fossil Scale as the hours of Beck, Radiohead and Bowie albums that tracked this writing period. Though it wasn’t until Georgia stumbled upon a news article about a mysterious ‘mutant-fish’ with reptilian head & fossilised scales discovered by Russian fishermen, that she began to quantify her own life in relation to her immutable surroundings. This fish became something of a representation of those constants, as Georgia began to explore the detachment from them that modern life had brought about.

Georgia Ruth - Fossil Scale

Welsh singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Georgia Ruth releases her new album Fossil Scale, on October 7, 2016.

The record is the follow up to 2013’s Welsh Music Prize winning Week Of Pines - a feat Georgia never contemplated she’d achieve for her critically acclaimed, bilingual debut album. The record prompted the Guardian to tip her as ‘One of the British folk discoveries of the year’, with Georgia going on to be twice nominated in the 2014 BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards, alongside radio support across Radio 1 and 6Music. UK live dates to support the release of Fossil Scale are expected to be announced shortly.
