Today, Melbourne based singer-songwriter Phoebe Go (Snakadaktal, Two People) has announced her highly anticipated debut LP ‘Marmalade‘ set for release on 17 May 2024. To mark the announcement, Phoebe has also revealed her latest single Leave, another preview of what’s to come from the forthcoming record, out now everywhere via AWAL.

With over 10 years of experience in the music industry under her belt after being thrown in the deep end at only 15 years old, Phoebe’s debut LP ‘Marmalade’ is a record about losing comfort and the process of finding it again, or at least finding your feet to go looking for it again. “I wanted the songs to be vulnerable and brave at the same time. Life threw some stuff my way. It’s a moment in time. I guess my desire to make this album was always bigger than my fear of it. ” Working closely with trusted friend and ARIA nominated producer Simon Lam (Charli XCX, Cub Sport, Allday, Juice Webster, Gretta Ray, Kllo, Armlock), Phoebe adds “Working on these songs was an outlet and it helped me move forward, which is the whole point I guess”. 

To mark the announcement, Phoebe has also revealed another single from the forthcoming record Leave, following on from recent singles Something You Were Trying and 7 Up“Leave is sort of about self numbing,” Phoebe explains of the new single. “It’s about shutting down and doing it out of fear. I wanted to capture that feeling, you know, desperation and dissociation. It’s about a time in my life where I felt kinda paralysed. It’s a bit wry and double edged but in a way this song is also an apology.” 

Phoebe adds “We had so much fun recording it. The first lyric idea I had was the ‘la-la-leave’ thing, which a friend told me over dinner one night was “so dumb” haha, and yet here we are. Simon and I recorded the weird vocal samples together which was hilarious. This song sort of took on a life of its own and we just had to hang in there for it. My friend Chris jumped on to play some guitars too while he was in the country which I’m so stoked with, oh and Simon plays my favourite guitar solo of all time at the end. These are some of my favourite moments on the record.” 

The new music and album announcement follows on from the exciting news that Phoebe Go will be joining fellow Melbourne based breakthrough act Teenage Dads on their ‘Majordomo’ headline tour across August +  September of this year.
