GG is an exciting talent whose latest single ‘Bloody Monday’ has been a real success on the indie scene. And she is now gearing up for the release of her brand new single ‘Freezing’ which will drop this June. Here we speak exclusively to GG to discuss her music career so far.
Growing up, who inspired your love of music?
GG: Bach. I first heard him at the age of 4, and that was when I started to realise that music truly is the best thing that humanity has ever done.
Who are your musical influences?
GG: All artists that release their own music really. I can be influenced by any big pop star, but I can be equally influenced by some unknown musician you might hear in a small bar in an unknown village when you are drunk, it just all depends on how the music affects me.
How would you describe your own sound to new listeners?
GG: Electropop fusion between hedgehog needles.
You’re playing the Great Escape on the 17th and 18th May, what can fans expect from the shows?
GG: I really wanted to do one of my full performances, however, they won’t have a screen on the stage which is something that I use in most of my live shows. Nevertheless, it will still be a great show full of electric vibes from both me and the dancer who will be performing, and I just hope the fans enjoy it as much as I do!
Can you talk us through the inspiration behind your upcoming new single ‘Freezing’?
GG: Weather in Moscow. Well I’m joking, partly… When we started to work with Eddy Atlantis on the new single, ‘Freezing’ was not one of our initial ideas. After the second day I was walking to the tube and feeling so tired and excited. I was waiting for the green light and the chorus appeared in my heart. I pulled out my phone and recorded the chorus trying to be louder than the cars passing through. One of the pedestrians smiled and said, ‘nice song, is it yours?’
Can we expect an album from you soon?
GG: A hint: Yes…
Do you have any touring plans lined-up?
GG: Not yet. But I really hope that I get the opportunity to tour in the future. I really like the performances that I have curated and I just want more people to see them.
What are your long term career goals?
GG: Staying put with my god complex. Again, joking… partly! I just want to carry on living and laughing as usual.
