SGO - 'Bookcase'
$5.00 - $10.00

Released April 28th, 2022

Limited edition of 30 CD singles.

'Bookcase' is the new single from Meanjin/Brisbane band SGO (fka syrup, go on).

Written by Kris Briese and Liz Dick over a few months in 2021 around the bones of a melancholic guitar riff, the two built the track through a coincidentally shared experience of ending relationships.

Naturally, the song became an avenue for exploring the themes of loneliness, isolation and loss. Rather than reflecting too deeply about the past or future, SGO’s take on the "breakup song" delves into the immediate thoughts and feelings experienced after an end to what was once a significant part of your life. It beckons the listener directly into the headspace of someone unsure of where their life is heading. The chorus line “maybe, it’s the start of something new – maybe, I might be missing you” encompasses the conflict of feelings of freedom and relief versus despair and regret that come from ending a relationship and is a testament to Liz’s ability to communicate strong emotions in a few words.

The new sonic tangent and bold name change also signifies the group shifting into a more mature phase of their journey with more experience behind the desk and constant life challenges helping to shape SGO into the refined dreampop outfit before us today.
