GL: Number One

Melbourne purveyors of synth-funk, GL are back with all-new single ‘Number One’. The track release follows GL’s stand-out performance at Splendour In The Grass in July, where Thompson also joined Mark Ronson onstage as part of his live supergroup. The pair emerged as a highlight of Sydney’s OutsideIn Festival earlier this month, and promise to do the same again when they take to the stage at Meredith Music Festival this December.

GL: Number One

An infectious treat of glowing synths, stratospheric vocals and luxurious neon-lit pop, “Number One” will enchant first time listeners as well as satiate fans of their debut EP ‘Love Hexagon’ in need of a GL fix.


Written, Performed and Produced by GL. Mixed by Haima Marriott. Recorded by Andrei Eremin. Additional Production & Recording by Haima Marriott. Mastered by Dave Cooley.

Melbourne-based duo Ella Thompson and Graeme Pogson aka GL have dropped the video for their new single, ‘Number One’, a bouncy anthemic electropop track strewn with glittering sounds. Speaking to V Magazine the pair explained some of the ideas behind the video: “The director Annelise Hickey is a great friend of ours, she is super clever and talented. We wanted to make something that had a slightly surreal narrative. Colour and movement are very much a part of the story. Many great moments were captured by chance, like when brothers Rhys and Louis were chasing the family chicken on the tennis court and Annelise decided to film it because the chicken matched their hair colour. I felt like we were in some sort of Edward Scissorhands suburbia. The song is kind of about idolising perfection, the video is like a visual dream sequence interpretation of that.”

GL: Number One Lyrics:
Number one, number one. Number one, number one

Let me, let me know
You take it back or let it go
‘Cause I really do believe
If I get close not falling out
I wanna feel these fallen ties
We could be the 18
Stop me, I’m all ready to go
You see, all or nothing before

I could be your number one. I’ll be your number one
I could be your number one. I’ll be your number one
I could be your number one. I could be your number one
I’ll be your number one.

I’ve been dreaming of you
Turn me inside now
My world upside down
I want your whole body
Tease me, it’s no mistake
We wanna get intimate
Or if you choose, let me
Oh, heartbreaking,
When all I see is you
Heart aching, you turn me into

I could be your number one. I’ll be your number one
I could be your number one. I’ll be your number one
I could be your number one. I could be your number one
I’ll be your number one.

I’ve been dreaming of you. I’ve been dreaming of you
I’ve been dreaming of you. I’ll save your life for me
I’ll be your number one, baby. I’ll be your number one
I’ll be your number one.
