Hannah Georgas – Pray It Away

The theme of Pray It Away – which concerns a battle with Hannah Georgas’ own conservative family about same-sex marriage – is serious and weighty, but the record is anything but. Poignant, yes, but also light and delicate, as if she’s delivering the song floating high above the unfolding scene below. Perhaps that’s my own projection of detachment, having never been through anything similar with my own family, but she certainly seems to have found some resolution. Regardless, it’s a wonderful song, taken from her excellent new album All That Emotion, which I very much recommend checking out.
