Incredible things can happen when your work explodes into the world. In the year since G Flip uploaded her debut single About You to Triple J Unearthed, the Melbourne indie pop phenomenon has found herself listed on event lineups all around Australia, including a speaking date at PEDESTRIAN‘s own Selfish Weekender. Just quietly, she’s also gone worldwide. G’day, Reading 2019.
But that kind of intense success can bring its own stresses, as the muso born Georgia Flipo has revealed in her new singles Bring Me Home and Drink Too Much.
In a music video for the former tune, the familiar is cast as strange: G Flip, whose live shows are propelled by her considerable skills as a drummer, can be seen blasting away on her all-white kit. Bring Me Home doesn’t feature a single drummed note though, forcing viewers to focus on strain of the performer behind the kit.
“2018 was an epic, exciting, exhausting year for me and my brain struggled to keep up,” G Flip writes in a message accompanying the vid, adding “It was really overwhelming and this song is about that. It’s ok not to be ok sometimes.”
The vid was shot over six hours in a 36° warehouse. If you want to see what that kind of mental and physical exhaustion looks like, have a peek the clip below:
A lyric video for Drink Too Much lays out some of the interpersonal tension brought about by, uh, drinking too much. Keep an ear out for her name-dropping Instagram influencer Steph Claire Smith, who is also slated to speak at PEDESTRIAN’s weekend worship of self-care:
You can expect G Flip to elaborate on those experiences with sudden success during her Q&A at PEDESTRIAN.TV‘s Selfish Weekend. Tickets for the event, which goes down in Sydney over March 16 and 17, can be found here.
