Georgia Webster’s new songs ”I Hate Phone Calls (Long Distance Sucks)” & “Risk” ft Jonathan Hutcherson are out now, August 26th, on all streaming platforms. Read below as we dig into the new music.
Georgia Webster popped up on to the country music scene during the peek of Covid and the height of music discovery on TikTok with her clever breakup song “Tell Your Mom”. Since then, she’s signed a record deal, released her debut EP, been on tour, and now is back with two new songs.
“I Hate Phone Calls (Long Distance Sucks)” is a song written by Webster and Country Swag favorite, Josh Kerr. The song opens with a banjo plucking an octave above Webster’s voice as she describes her distaste for long distance relationships.
“I hate phone calls // I’m sick of pretending I’m okay // When you ask me how I’m doing // There ain’t that much left to say”
The title tells you everything you need to know about the song, and it’s a tune that so many people will be able to relate to, especially in this day and age with technology.
The second song, “Risk” is a mid-tempo moment that reflects a different side of relationships: the ending. It’s unclear whether or not this is continuing the long distance story, but Webster sings in a way that shows she harbors no resentment – she just knows that when you fall deeply in love with a good person, it’s bound to hurt if you break up – that’s the risk.
“Guess that’s the risk that you take // When you love someone like I loved you”
Webster and Johnathan Hutcherson, her duet partner blend very well together vocally, and the production builds very sweetly and cinematically. Having another vocalist on the track makes it an interesting two-sided story instead of just one, and it makes you wonder if there could be a third part of the story.
