Elise Go, a native of the Bay Area, is releasing a duet with fellow Berklee alum and former classmate Pipo Fernandez. To Say Goodbye invokes feelings of yearning and sadness over a love that’s fading.
Sound-wise, the song’s striking quality comes from its rich acoustic production. Even though it may not be actively in motion, it still has significant energy. Pipo and Elise are effective at communicating the lyrics’ point through their singing.
In describing the single, Pipo says the following: “When Elise & I wrote this song, we were both going through difficult long distance relationships. This song is a culmination of those honest feelings, featuring acoustic instruments, synthesizers, and orchestral elements. We wrote this song back when we first met at Berklee College of Music, and over years of Skype writing sessions, thousands of miles, being stranded on an island due to a global pandemic, it’s finally done.”
