Hope D – Hate Goodbyes

The last time I wrote about Brisbane-based Hope Defteros was in the spring of 2020. Around that same time, she also posted a video with a live acoustic version of Hate Goodbyes. Two years later, a newly recorded studio version is her new single. The origins of the song go back even longer. Hope says she wrote the track in 2018 about a romance that was ‘constantly ending and starting again’.

Hope D explains: “It was difficult to come to the realisation that we shouldn’t be together and just call it off completely, but the thought of that final goodbye was so unbearable that we continuously kept the relationship going after it would end. I would come to terms with the reality that we were only together because it was painful not to be, which caused spirals, emotional shut offs, and yet again another breakup.”

Hate Goodbyes is an energetic, shiny pop-rock track that’ll do well during Hope’s upcoming Australian tour.
