GL are Melbourne duo Ella Thompson and Graeme Pogson, who together create a thrilling contemporary spin on classic disco, funk, boogie, soul and electronic pop.
From 2013’s Love Hexagon EP to acclaimed debut album Touch, to their 2017 double A-sided 12” Destiny/Reflect, the band have earned international recognition from the likes of The Guardian, i-D, The Fader, V Magazine and XLR8R, as well as extensive airtime with Touch awarded feature album/album of the week on FBi Radio, SYN FM and Radio Adelaide.
After a sold-out national tour off the back of their debut album last year, GL have since toured nationally again and headed to EU/UK for the first time. With sets at the country’s most distinguished festivals Splendour In The Grass, St Jerome’s Laneway Festival, Meredith Music Festival, Pitch Festival, Panama, Lost Paradise and Beyond The Valley, GL have won over crowds at intimate and large-scale shows alike.
At once ebullient, melancholic, amorous, sweet, tempestuous, sexy, nocturnal, heartbroken and carefree, GL’s songwriting never loses sight of being consistently inviting, stylish and danceable.
