Who is G Flip? Her song “About You” is catchy pop (and she’s playing SXSW)

G Flip

Australian musician Georgia Flipo has spent the last few years drumming and singing backup vocals in Melbourne band EMPRA, and teaching music when not out on tour. A year ago she redirected and holed up in her bedroom to begin work on her own music. Georgia uploaded the first fruits of those labors, “About You,” to triple j Unearthed under the name G Flip late last week. By the end of the day the song was featured on Unearthed and got airplay on triple j. Over the next couple of days, it was featured everywhere from YouTube’s New Music playlist to Pitchfork’s Best New Tracks.

It’s easy to appreciate the quick rise of “About You” after a single listen. Georgia’s strong voice carries the song over a few lines of buzzy synths, and then the drum beat kicks in and the track really picks up. It’s catchy electro-tinged pop in a style reminiscent of Grimes and Lykke Li’s less melancholy moments, with ties to Georgia’s stated influences, which include “The Internet, MJ, Jack Garrat, Anderson. Paak, Kimbra, Frank Ocean, Gwen Stefani in the early ’00s.” “About You” is G Flip’s only release at the moment, and you can listen to it, along with a clip of her cover of “Hallelujah,” below.

G Flip hasn’t announced a full tour, but she will be appearing at this year’s SXSW, which kicks off in Austin, TX in less than a month.
