New Album. Alice Phoebe Lou – Orbit

Today sees the highly anticipated release of Alice Phoebe Lou’s brand new debut full length, Orbit. A songstress bred in little Cape Town, but forged on the streets of Berlin, has sold nearly ten thousand copies of her debut EP and Live Album directly to fans, enabling her to fund the recording of her debut album. Comprising of nine jazz-influenced, eclectic tracks recorded between Cape Town and Berlin, the album encapsulates the freshness of her live style, vagabond spirit and showcase her distinctive, soprano voice.

Alice stands for that part of you that knows the world should somehow be different, and rears its head occasionally in defiance of the norms, the rules, and the crushing inequality that is our modern life. She tells this story in her lyrics, asks us to be kinder to one another and explores how it feels to be alive, all the while lighting the world up around her with her infectious charisma. It’s undeniable.

Alice started this year on tour in her native South Africa with Sixto Rodriguez, followed by a European tour with Australian band Boy & Bear before heading off to the US to play at SXSW as well as a string of shows in the US (SF, LA and NYC).

This coming May she will embark on her own European tour together with her band. Every step of the way Alice aims to perform short solo sets at record stores and on the streets of the cities she visits on tour.
