Artists: Hannah Georgas, Uni Ika Ai
Genre: Indie Pop
Venue: The Mod Club, Toronto
When: December 7, 2016
Hannah Georgas took over the Mod Club in Toronto this week with supporting act Uni Ika Ai to play a beautifully moving show full of soft ballads, dreamy melodies, and free-spirited dance tunes.
Brooklyn based dream pop group Uni Ika Ai opened the evening with a set of ethereal, ambient melodies that effortlessly mesmerize the listener and reach down into your core. A mix of hazy psychedelic elements and delicate vocals made up most of the set, drawing the crowd in without fail. Towards the end of their set, the band threw in a dash of punchy, rhythmic elements on their tune “Soft In Ice” to make it an undeniably memorable performance.
It didn’t take long for the venue to fill up with excited fans as Hannah Georgas took the stage. The Vancouver based indie pop songstress has an admirable talent for capturing attention and commanding the room with her vocal capabilities, expressive lyrics, and infectious hooks. As a live performer, her artistry and passion shines through. There were several moments throughout the show where the audience was captivated by a single note or swaying along without a care, simply enthralled by the music
Songs like the emotionally raw, sentimental track “Don’t Go” and the poignant, yet musically uplifting “Robotic” were some of the most memorable moments of the evening. Her entrancing vocals took over in tunes like “Elephant” and the carefree nature of “Shortie” proved that Hannah’s talent lies not only in ballads, but in bouncy, textured pop melodies as well.
Be sure to check out her latest album,featuring the single “Don’t Go” and keep an eye out for any future shows for a truly unforgettable experience.

I’ve been involved in music my whole life and have developed a passion for helping out or working in the industry any way I can. I’m interested in helping talented artists gain the recognition they deserve in this crazy business. I am currently studying Communication Studies at York University in Toronto, and working at a local theatre doing marketing and communications, as well as helping out a local festival called Rock the Coliseum. Indie, alt-rock/pop, and metal are my favourites but I’m open to all music genres! If I’m not at a show, I’m doing yoga, grabbing coffee, or looking for some craft beer.
