Dork fave Phoebe Green has shared a brand new single, ‘So Grown Up’.
Coming alongside a Vasilia Forbes directed video (whose previous visual work includes credits with the likes of Pixey, GIRLI and Hannah Diamond), it follows up on her Really Very Brilliant previous single ‘IDK’, and is described as “the first taste of a bigger body of work still to come”.
Can anyone say album?
Speaking about ‘So Grown Up’, Phoebe explains: “For a while now I’ve been wanting to write a song that feels like it’s straight out of a ‘90s coming-of-age film, that is equal parts nostalgic and bittersweet; I wrote about my relationship with my best friend of ten years, and how our pivotal years from vulnerable teenagers into adults were somewhat moulded by men and our experiences with them. Our self worth and our identity was so heavily warped by the male gaze, and it was overwhelming and almost uncomfortable to come to that realisation, I really wanted this song to reflect those feelings of sadness and anger that I feel now, but also our combined strength, resilience and love that we have as a result.”
“When it came to filming the music video, I wanted to go back to Blackpool, the place we went to school together and spent countless nights walking the illuminations, discussing our hopes and fears for the future, drinking the cheapest wine we could find and making ourselves dizzy on the waltzers on the pier, it was such a special day and the video means so much to us, we’ll treasure it forever.”
Phoebe is currently on tour with Black Honey, but will hit London next month for our special Dork’s Night Out show at Camden Assembly on 10th November. Also featuring Joey Maxwell and Mollie Coddled, you can grab tickets here.
