Melbourne’s GL Bid For “Number One”

Synthy, sweet, and oh so starry-eyed.

September 29, 2015

Melbourne duo GL, aka Ella Thompson and Graeme Pogson, won hearts last year with their synthy and sweet EP, Love Hexagon. Today the duo return for the first time since that project's release with a new track to serve as both a treat for patient fans and a teaser for their debut album, which is expected to arrive sometime next year. Just as we've come to expect from these guys, "Number One" is a tad funky and a ton starry eyed. In short, this is a song for any one who is vying for that top spot. "We made a rhythm track that was inspired by early drum machine funk," the group told The FADER via email, adding that they "wanted to express the feeling of frustration at being someone's second best, yearning to become the number one to that person in your fantasies”
