Words by Tim Hakki @TimHakki
Alice Phoebe Lou’s mesmerising ‘SHE’ disingenuously starts as a slow burner, with little but her piercingly high (in the best way possible) vocal to guide us into the body of the track. Dreamily floating into the body of the track she switches gear and presents us with a life-affirming festival stomper. Alice says of the song that it’s a "high energy anthem... inspired by women who go against the prescribed boundaries and pave the way for other women to be empowered and realise their strengths. It feels incredible to release it into the world, at a time that feels just right, as woman everywhere tell their stories and are heard.” And in one unpretentiously conscious swoop, the Berliner (from South Africa) announces herself as one of the most exciting new songwriters in the world. Oh my poor heart.
