Watch: GL - Number One
GL are heading straight to the top with their surreal disco pop single.
GL is the project of vocalist Ella Thompson and Graeme Pogson, and last year they won a small chunk of the music community over with their sweet EP, Love Hexagon. This cosmic synth duo, out of Melbourne, have returned with a bright and funky single called Number One, which has a very enjoyable video clip to go with it. Speaking about the video clip, GL said they “wanted to make something that had a slightly surreal narrative, colour and movement are very much a part of the story… I felt like we were in some sort of Edward Scissorhands suburbia”.
Directed by Annelise Hicky, this semi-retro, semi-now clip captures a colourful and awkwardly sexual glimpse into Aussie suburbia. It's not number 1 on the charts yet, but the clip does serious justice to modernist disco-pop at its glittering best.
The new single is a teaser for GL’s debut album, which should arrive next year via Plastic World. If you’re in Melbourne, Brisbane or Sydney, you can catch GL supporting Chet Faker on his Australian Tour, which are All Ages shows (bring the kids!). Watch the clip for Number One below via YouTube.
