George Michelle & Separate Ways - Keep Me Waiting
9 May 2019
Sydney producer George Michelle has teamed up with US duo Separate Ways for upbeat indie house single ‘Keep Me Waiting’. ‘Keep Me Waiting’ evokes feelings of nostalgia, with Separate Ways’ groove-led instrumentation and bright vocals paired with George Michelle’s signature ‘90s house synths.
On ‘Keep Me Waiting’ George Michelle & Separate Ways say “This song encompasses thinking you could take it slow by setting boundaries and doing what you thought was best, but ultimately giving in to how irresistible it felt when you were together.”
The music video for ‘Keep Me Waiting’ tells the story of a hopeless, coming-of-age romance. Written by George Michelle, directed by Jack Shepard (Lime Cordiale, Lola Scott) and produced by Joel Martorana (Endless Heights), we see the protagonist (played by George Michelle) meet a love interest with a difference in high school. We follow their blossoming romance and then gradual decline, into a broken, irreparable relationship.
Having previously hit #3 on the ARIA Club Chart with his remix of PNAU’s hit ‘Changa’, and with support from FBi Radio, Red Bull, NOISEY and Purple Sneakers, it’s clear George Michelle is a new addition to your ‘One to Watch’ list. ‘Keep Me Waiting’ follows George Michelle’s latest release ‘Here Right Now’ featuring Gauci, and 2018 single ‘Watchin Me’, which have seen support from the likes of triple j Unearthed, Purple Sneakers, Patrick Topping and Sonny Fodera.
Until just last year, George Michelle had been exclusively releasing material via Bandcamp, as well as a one-off release on vinyl. His debut LP 'Gang Signs for Outsiders' was manufactured in limited quantities on double cassette and covered by Vice’s NOISEY labelling it "a heavy dose of deep house and garage on the 12 tracks of scattered club music."
After being championed by Patrick Topping in 2018, George Michelle has just been announced to support Patrick Topping at his sold-out show at Sydney’s ivy this June. Catch George Michelle playing shows over the coming months and get ‘Keep Me Waiting’ now.
