The five songs on the Kingfisher EP deal in nostalgia, lost time, and the peculiar pleasure of sadness.

It was recorded in StudiOwz in Pembrokeshire in December 2021, engineered by Iwan Morgan (who co-produced along with Georgia, and with whom she worked on her last album Mai).

Musicians include Stephen Black (Group Listening, Sweet Baboo) and Iwan Huws, and with additional percussion by Osian Williams, and string arrangements by Owain Roberts.

Georgia Ruth is a songwriter and musician from Aberystwyth in West Wales, whose debut album - Week of Pines - won the Welsh Music Prize in 2013 and was nominated for two BBC Folk Awards.

She duetted with the Manic Street Preachers on their track Divine Youth - recently described by The Guardian's Alexis Petridis as an "echo-swathed but tender meditation on ageing" in a list of his 30 all-time best Manics tracks.

Since then, she has released two more albums - Fossil Scale (2016) - "a deeply intelligent return" (CLASH) - and Mai (2020).

Mai's first single ('Close for Comfort') had support from 6Music and plays by Huw Stephens, Cerys Matthews, Lauren Laverne and Mary Anne Hobbs, amongst others.

Tracks were featured on BBC Radio 3's Night Tracks, and it was one of Tim Burgess' Twitter Listening Party albums.
