With her beautiful, angelic voice, like a gift from the ancients and her spiraling, soaring sounds GEA creates an almost circus like atmosphere full of layered vocals and gorgeous beats where one has the feeling that absolutely anything could happen. 

Laura Avonius records under the name “GEA” and her sound is hard to describe.  Her music puts one in mind of Bijork and Julee Cruise, but she’s far more mediaeval and icey in a Nordic way, full of humor and warmth.  She writes song about love, life and whatever the universe seems to be channeling through her.

The songs are haunting, ethereal, full of fascinating percussion and instruments more at home in folk music. But this doesn’t sound like folk music.  Her fluid keys and lovely atmospheric sound design and production create a space all her own.  Avonius was inspired by heartbreak as well on the track “Snow” by the death of a friend.  Our lives give us memories both happy and painful to inspire us to create. 

This is a truly lovely EP.  GEA’s sound is epic and polished and inspiring.  Her deeply cinematic sound is hopeful and energized as well as powerfully soothing.  It sounds like victory and peace and we need some peace in our lives right now.  Loved it!
