Song of the Day: Phoebe Go – Hey

Australian artist, Phoebe Go, shares the announcement of her debut EP Player, out October 28th, with new single “Hey.”

After the success of her high-school band, Snakadaktal, catapulted her into the music industry at the budding age of 15, Phoebe was just a kid. Now, with 10 more years of experience and another exceptional project, Two People, under her belt, it’s time for her to catapult herself. The result is a grippingly vulnerable, earnest, untouched solo debut that reaps simplicity. The process of finding her voice as a solo artist has been, as described by Phoebe herself, daunting. But, in a way, it has also set her free. Songwriting is the love of her life, and that sentiment is palpable in this first offering.

“Hey” is a stripped-back and poignant dedication to Phoebe’s cousin who passed away a few years ago, fueled by the exercise and sensations that come with dealing with grief. “This song’s really close to me. I lost my youngest cousin really suddenly a few years back and I didn’t know how to make sense of it all. And I still don’t and I don’t think I ever will. But this song is really my way of coming to grips with that,” she shares. Enjoy the tune!
