Melbourne’s G Flip (aka, Georgia Flipo) has returned with her new single, dropping “Hyperfine” this morning following weeks of anticipation.
Having performed the track live numerous times over the past few months, G Flip gave fans a taster of the track in late February after sharing a demo version online. Before long, excitement surrounding the tune grew and early March saw her play the track as part of her appearance on triple j’s Like A Version.
“I’ve been playing this song live quite a bit and it’s one of the songs that I always get feedback from and people are messaging me like, ‘When are you gonna release it?’ And I was like, it’s not ready yet but I can just play it on piano,” Georgia explained at the time.
“So I put it up and did not expect the feedback that I got from that. It got over nearly 40,000 views on the first day.”
Now, following a premiere on triple overnight, G Flip has officially released “Hyperfine”, co-produced with Tim Anderson (Billie Eilish, Solange, Banks) in LA.
“I wrote this song after having silly little bickering fights with my partner. In relationships it’s so common to say “it’s fine” when it’s really not fine,” Georgia says of the track. “If you care about someone, talk to them. In the context of what’s going on, I thought it would be a good chance to drop a bit of a bop to sing along to and feel alive again in this time.
“I started playing this live on my album tour late last year and people really got around it and have been demanding it ever since. If you’re not feeling “fine” right now, don’t be afraid to speak up about it. We’re in this together.”
Teaming up with director and animator Dan Wakehurst, G Flip has also shared an animated music video to accompany the clip, with visuals for the clip being shot on green screen from her own bedroom
“Dan (the animator) is incredible and a genius at what he does,” she adds of the video. “With Dan social distancing in Sydney and me in Melbourne, COVID made it impossible for us to film together in a traditional sense.
“We improvised by setting up a green screen space in my house. Dan jumped in and virtually directed me via Skype and we filmed using lighting and film gear I found in my house. My mum even got involved and held a hairdryer to create “wind” during my bike scene, thanks Mum. We had so much fun going back and forth via Skype, giving notes, and navigating this new video process.”
G Flip is currently looking ahead to a postponed regional tour of Australia, though there’s no word yet as to when these dates will be rescheduled.
