Chitra Releases New Single ‘Go Easy’, Joins Queenscliff Music Festival Lineup

Chitra has released her second single of 2023, ‘Go Easy’. It’s a hooky indie pop song rooted in the singer’s vacillating wants and needs. The release of ‘Go Easy’ coincides with Chitra’s addition to Queenscliff Music Festival 2023. Triple j Unearthed High finalist Lotte Gallagher has also been added to QMF 2023.

Chitra will perform both ‘Go Easy’ and previous single ‘In My Opinion’, plus more new material, during a series of shows at BIGSOUND this September. Find details of Chitra’s official BIGSOUND showcases and a couple of party appearances below.

Chitra – ‘Go Easy’

The second verse of ‘Go Easy’ includes the line, “Want to be held but not too tightly,” which encapsulates the indecision and mixed emotions at the core of the song. “I wrote [‘Go Easy’] about sitting on a feeling when you’re hesitant to act on it,” Chitra said in a statement. “Anticipating the worst but being drawn to it constantly.”

Though, by seeking to decipher these emotions, Chitra used ‘Go Easy’ as a vessel for finding inner calm, hence the song title and lyrics such as, “Won’t hurt / If you never wondered why.”

Chitra will perform official BIGSOUND showcases backed by a full band on Tuesday, 5th September at Soapbox Beer and Thursday, 7th September at The Outpost. She’s also playing the Up Late and Unsigned party at The Brightside on Tuesday, 5th and Jet Black Cat’s Sonic Boom event at The Triffid on Thursday, 7th.
