(New York, NY) Alice Phoebe Lou has announced the release of her anticipated full-length album, Paper Castles, on March 8th, 2019, and kicked off her first ever North American headlining tour in support
A fire dancer turned singer-songwriter, Alice’s fiercely independent approach to her art has given her a creative confidence that shines through in her jazzy and ethereal indie songs, filled with captivating vocals and stripped back music. Born in South Africa and having developed her eclectic and distinctive sound busking on the streets of Berlin, she has caught the ears of a community of music lovers the world over. She’s earned praise from NPR, Rolling Stone, The FADER, Blackbookand more, and has been previously nominated for Best Female Artist at the German Critics Choice Awards. In addition to relentless global touring, since 2016, she has put on a total of eleven sold out shows at the Berlin Planetarium (the biggest in Europe), working hand in hand with the director of the planetarium to produce a spectacular symbiosis of live sound and amazing visuals.
Paper Castles is Alice’s second full-length release, following 2016’s Orbit. She has also independently released two EPs, Momentum and Sola, as well as several singles. In 2017, a live version of the song, “She,” was released and racked up over four million plays on YouTube and was featured in the film Bombshell: The Heady Lamarr Story, executive produced by Susan Sarandon, all before the studio version of the single was even released. Produced by Noah Georgeson, Alice explains that Paper Castles is “about nostalgia, about growing into a woman, about the pain and beauty of the past, about feeling small and insignificant but finding that to be powerful and beautiful, about acknowledging that childhood is over but bringing some of it with you.”
In support of Paper Castles, Alice will embark on an extensive international tour. Tickets are now available at alicephoebelou.com.
