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.

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.”
