Undefined (Don't Call Me)
Release: February 5, 2021
Following a breakout year in 2020 with the release of impressive singles and a stint on FOX’s I Can See Your Voice, LA-based singer and songwriter Elise Go is back with her latest release, ‘Undefined (Don’t Call Me)’. Speaking about the new song, she said, “Undefined is my f*ck you song. In the wake of social media, we are connected as ever, but also disconnected as ever. I wrote this song about the vague bubble so many people choose to stay in, which is really a manipulative way to play the field, but still have options at your beck and call. After all, if you were never really together, was it even heartbreak? I wrote this song of my frustration in being in a situation like this and because I was gaslit in my experience, music was the safest place for me to voice how I felt.”
The Scorpio Sessions
Release: October 23, 2020
Leaning into the enigmatic aura often associated with her astrological sign, this acoustic-style EP sees the artist uncover the veil to reveal her vulnerable self, stripping down her most emotional records to date. Speaking on the project, she said “As a songwriter, writing is my therapy. It’s the most raw, genuine way to express my emotions, especially when I’m feeling down. I’m a Scorpio and we are known for being extremely passionate, but also mysterious and intimidating. I decided that I wanted to peel back the curtain, and share this side of me with you. I wanted to strip these songs down so you could hear the lyrics, understand the emotions, and sit with those feelings.”
Lonelier with You
Release: October 2, 2020
Following on from a wave of impressive singles over the last few months, which have included the much-loved ‘Good Company’ and Jacobi collaboration ‘TALK2U’, LA-based singer and songwriter Elise Go now returns with her latest bold and progressive pop gem ‘Lonelier with You’. Taking a step away from her usual direction and co-produced by the artist, ‘Lonelier with You’ sees her pursue a darker and more intense aesthetic. While maintaining plenty of her glossy and uplifting flow throughout, this new release begins the start of something new for the artist as she channels a more introspective and groove-laded feel throughout.

The song has been a breakthrough for her, amassing over 50K combined streams across all major streaming platforms.
Release: October 9, 2017
