“Who needs a back up band when you can alchemize a ridiculously catchy synthpop gem all by yourself?” – Pitchfork
It has been a crazy month for Melbourne’s Georgia Flipo (G Flip), who recently uploaded her debut single to triple j Unearthed. “About You” is officially released today on all platforms, and available to listen to HERE.
An addictive, bittersweet piece of shimmering pop, “About You” was spun on triple j’s Good Nights a few hours after it was uploaded on Unearthed, and it soon after caught the attention of Australian and international media. Pitchfork named it “Best New Track“, The Line Of Best Fit said it was ‘the best debut we’ve heard in months’, YouTube added it to their New Music This Week playlist (over 99 million subscribers), and more.
When her teacher died suddenly at 30 years of age, it drove a devastated Georgia to go hard after the dreams they’d talked about in those long hours at school: tour the US, be “that drummer girl who sings” and eventually, make her own music. After hitting the road across the US and Asia playing drums in a touring band, she realised she’d taken other people’s music as far as she could. Soon after, she headed back to Melbourne and set up a bedroom studio in a suburban sharehouse.
