Celeste Buckingham was born in Switzerland with a gift for music — a gift that she used to connect with Eastern Europe, and that she is now using to draw North America out. Her style is clean and energetic, music that would shine on any Top 40 radio station, but that digs deeper than most. First and foremost a songwriter, Buckingham takes pride in the stories she is able to weave with her lyrics: her voice elevates the songs with a smooth passion. Her beats are made for movement.
With “Go Away”, she lurches with confidence, making her feelings known while reflecting on a poisonous relationship. It’s the kind of song you want to dance to, it’s a song that will pump you up, that will raise your self-value as the energy builds. The video reflects this shift. We open with beautiful choreography and Buckingham on a pile of rocks. She is joined by more dancers who build her up until she can finally tell her ex — separated from her by a minimal fence — to go away. By the end of the video, she’s decked out in chic clothes and releasing her powerful confidence.
“Go Away” is a song about reclaiming self, about pulling from your own depths in order to continue on, and about emerging victorious. If you’re looking for a self-esteem boost, Celeste Buckingham is here for you.
