Teasing a debut record coming in 2024, Melbourne-based singer-songwriter Phoebe Go has today released a playful and confessional new single “7 Up” – out now everywhere via AWAL. To mark the occasion, Phoebe has also released the official video clip for the new single.

In classic Phoebe Go fashion, the playful melody is contradicted by the bittersweet lyrics that translate the ache in your chest that comes with the realisation it’s time to let go of something you were hoping you wouldn’t need to, confessed so candidly. The lyrics feel heavy though the upbeat, no frills production adds a lightness to the track.

“To me this song has a kind of recklessness and a rush about it but maybe that’s the whole point. That’s how letting go feels sometimes,” Phoebe says of the track. The lyrics feel like the words of a page ripped straight from Phoebe’s journal, because they pretty much are – honest and introspective.

“I didn’t plan on writing this song, but I think it was time,” she continues. “I guess I realized that I’d been putting someone else before myself for a while, which is sweet, you know, but it gets old and it gets tiring. ‘7 Up’ is about seeing something through different eyes. It’s about setting some shit straight.”

“7 Up” follows on from Phoebe’s painful yet playful recent single “Something You Were Trying” released in late 2022, with both adding to the anticipation of what’s to come from Phoebe’s next project, due later this year.
