New Zealand based vocal powerhouse Georgia Lines releases her stunning new single, “Call Me By My Name.”
The hypnotic piano driven ballad showcases Lines’ exquisite vocals and emphasizes why she is one of the most mesmerizing voices in New Zealand right now.
Written at the end of lockdown in 2020, Lines teamed up with acclaimed writer and producer Djeisan Suskov (LEISURE, Benee, Paige) to create the understated, yet powerful “Call Me By My Name.”
The song explores human relationships and the challenges we all feel as humans. “It’s about the tension that is felt in every relationship where as individuals we want to be seen, understood and valued for who we are,” says Lines. “… But knowing that compromise, sacrifice and a willingness to learn and grow is necessary to love another human.
“I am so incredibly proud of this one,” Lines continues. “Djeisan [Suskov] is such an incredible writer and producer, and it has been such a privilege working together on ‘Call Me By My Name.’
The single is accompanied by a music video that is best described as a visual piece of art and features the directorial debut of Georgia Lines herself.
“I loved being a part of the directing process in this video. My inner bossy 12 year old self came to the surface in the director’s chair. We filmed the video whilst doing a photoshoot for ‘Call Me By My Name’ and thought it was such a fun concept of splitting screens to create strange and wonderful silhouettes of myself with all the moments that happen behind the camera.”
“Call Me By My Name” continues a stellar 2021 for Georgia Lines. The recently released “No One Knows” achieved top 100 radio airplay and saw performances across a range of media outlets in New Zealand. Of the track, Ear To The Ground raved, “It’s oozing with confidence and an intoxicating intimacy that will have you wanting to put it on repeat in no time.” Lines also embarked on a co-headline tour with LAIIKA and was one of the performers at TUAWAHINE alongside Anika Moa, Annie Crummer, Paige and Tami Neilson.
Georgia Lines is a star on the rise with an exquisite voice that promises even more to come.
