PHOEBE GREEN Unveils Powerful New Single ‘Easy Peeler’
Biting and full of attitude, there’s a lot to love with Phoebe Green’s newest single Easy Peeler.
Manchester’s Phoebe Green looks set to make a big name for herself by the sounds and sights of her newest single Easy Peeler. There’s barely enough room in the track to contain the momentous character of the track, which swaggers with confidence and oozes attitude at every corner. Whether it’s the biting lyricism or scathing guitars, there’s a clear intent behind every aspect of the track that builds to the larger-than-life feeling it conveys. Channelling an irresistible femininity along the way through dreamy vocals and tinkering piano, Phoebe is sure to also be an icon for young women to seek inspiration and empowerment from.
Speaking more on the cutting lyricism that form the track, Phoebe says:
I was thinking about a time when I really fancied someone and just wanted absolutely everything with them. 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.
The accompanying visuals for the track bring all of the smoke and drama that one can envision the track to, and lays them out in a jazzy, retro way. Directed by Harvey Frost at Misc Production, Phoebe mentions:
[The video is] 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.
