G Flip: “Stupid”

By: Jack Anderson

When G Flip, aka Georgia Flipo, put out her self-produced single “About Time”, she couldn’t imagine what would happen next. Overnight, she received recognition from Pitchfork, NPR, and Rolling Stone and had booked eight showcases at SXSW to start. The Melbourne based drummer, producer, and songwriter grew up and playing in the background in bands ranging from reggae to pop-rock but found a chance to create her own music after the bands she was playing with kept fizzling out. About Us, G Flip’s first album out August 30th came after two months spent holed up in her bedroom, chronicling the end of her relationship as it coincided with the rise of her music career.

On “Stupid” G Flip combines woozy indie-pop sensibilities and catchy lyrics to capture the self-sabotage that comes with the inevitable end of a relationship. Backed by her signature drum beats, G Flip is bringing a new, upbeat meaning to bedroom pop.
