mystery trip 03:11
Where do I find myself at such an hour At my bruised feet falls the petal of a flower Only a scent so sweet Can heal my wound so deep Under a creeping heat I feel myself cower She’s too delicate to touch I fear she might break Lady Pocahontas, wait’s by the lake Without a hair out of place I reach to untie her lace But lady Pocahontas shies away again I am ashamed How do I find myself at this conclusion I’ve been searching for an end Banging my head up against The changing of the tides again It’s not our fault that we are both lying And fighting Inside This tiny little room We both avert our eyes But there’s no where to go, oh Lady Pocahontas did we get it right? Or do I gotta sleep alone again tonight?

The light was soft blue, you would be forgiven for thinking it was somewhere in England as the rain started to drizzle. Though it wasn't England, it was somewhere in Sydney's North in the back yard of the Benjamin's family home. They were kicking or throwing a ball of some description, trying to prevent Monday morning coming sooner, because it meant they had to be back at school. Jordan would make the venture to the Riley home most weekends to play music with Benjamin and his brother.

Skip forward March 18, 2010. Georgia Fair's first time in Texas, green as the edamame beans that they didn't order. Complimentary from the fancy Japanese place that they charged to the new company card they had acquired. Ate them whole, skin and all, spat them out just the same. Fresh from recording what would be the first of two albums in the US. The first "All Through Winter" near the Blue Ridge Mountains, North Carolina with mentor & guru Bill Reynolds (Band of Horses). The second "Trapped Flame" in Los Angeles with pork pie Ted Hutt & musicians from the bands of the likes of PJ Harvey.

The outfits changed but the nucleus stayed the same. Great songs. Authenticity, travel & adventure. Incidentally they did find themselves in England. First in the town where Benjamin was born. Second in London where Jordan lost his shit a bit. Sharing a shoe box of a studio with a fake fire place that they transcended to keep the Georgia Fair flame burning.

Like so many of their musical heroes they traversed the Indian Ocean looking for new landscape and inspiration, what surmounted was some of their best writing to date. 'The World's Awake' is the latest glimpse offered by the effervescent Georgia Fair.
