Phoebe Green has shared her new single ‘Easy Peeler’.
Written with The Big Moon’s Juliette Jackson and produced with Kaines & Tom A.D, the track arrives ahead of her upcoming support tour with Swim Deep.
“I was thinking about a time when I really fancied someone and just wanted absolutely everything with them,” Phoebe says of the song. “I started listing typical things that couples do, and the lyrics started to form this sarcastic portrayal of what it means to be in a modern relationship, and the way people can control others’ perceptions of them as a couple, whether it be in a virtual or real life environment.
“People are proper obsessed with keeping up appearances and maintaining this perfect ideal, so the song highlights the naïvety of someone that is inexperienced anticipating what a relationship involves, based off what society and social media project.”
Of the video, she adds: “[It’s] a visual representation of the two sides of a romantic relationship: the aspects of it that others are presented with, and the moments that are kept behind closed doors. For me it was a really fun opportunity to play both a masculine and feminine role. Harvey’s artistic vision for the video was incredible and suited the song so well, the sleazy jazz bar and the retro outfits created a dead cool aesthetic that brought it all together beautifully.”
