Known for her unique blend of modern electronics, ethereal vocals, and pop-infused melodies, Australian starlet Phebe Starr announces her Chronicles EP set for release on March 31st. Today, she shares “The Keep Telling Me” – a shimmering new single bolstered by the experimental touches of Swedish producer Fredrik Odesjo. Driven by a militant beat and an insistent bassline, Phebe comments:
“I wrote this track after the worst co-write I’ve had in my life. Two sexist jerks told me to sit in a room and shut up while they wrote a hit for me. It was humiliating and demoralised the purpose of creativity and the hard work I’ve put into creating a life filled with it. It’s horrible being treated as a stereotype or having to live up to one to be accepted. I wrote this song about my quiet rebellion from those expectations which seem to chase me through life.”
Chronicles is a five track EP that ebbs and flows from vulnerability to boldness. It’s complicated, multi-dimensional, and at times, intriguingly off-kilter. A richly autobiographical EP, it retraces the fantastic journey of how she arrived to where she is now, and how she came to understand whom she wanted to be. Anchored by her critically acclaimed single “Feel My Love,” which garnered over two million streams and counting, Chronicles sees Phebe emerge with a career-defining work.
Phebe Starr’s debut EP Zero released in 2014 and quickly gained comparisons to the likes of heavyweights Lykki Li, Florench Welch, and Sia. Featuring hit single “Alone With You,” the EP garnered extensive radio play with Australia’s Triple J and saw her touring with Of Monsters And Men, The Paper Kites, and more.
As she gears up for the release of Chronicles on March 31st, stay tuned for more!
