Singer-songwriter Alice Phoebe Lou left her home country South Africa immediately after high school and left for Europe to pursue the adventure and career in music. Now she has become a true up-and-coming talent. Listen to new album 'Paper Castle' and you understand why, Lou makes sweet songs that gently penetrate your ear. A perfect marriage between folk, jazz, indie and electronics.
Support comes from Salami Rose Joe Louis. Weirdo pop from another planet, dreamy and playful melodies flow over electronic beats and make you long for a place and a time you've never known.

Quote: "She uses the mesmerizing beats of a Berlin nightclub to corrupt the album’s underlying organic and rustic sound. She recreates these natural sounds using synth and technology, creating a confusing and delightful paradox.”
