Australian singer-songwriter Phebe Starr (her real name) is a rare artist who captures the human experience and translates it into resonating beauty. Written by Starr, produced by Aria Nominated producer Xavier Dunn (Jack River, Graace, Peking Duk), and mixed by Chris Collins (Middle Kids, Skeggs, Gang Of Youths). Often compared to Lykke Li and Marina & the Diamonds with a mystic edge of Kate Bush and Florence and the Machine, Starr’s place in the music world is undeniable.
Her deft mix of new and old made her EPs Chronicles (2017) and Zero (2015) stand out against the rest of her peers. Starr garnered immediate radio support at Triple J (over 7 million streams to date) and has earned “one-to-watch” nods from Glamour, Nylon, Harper’s Bazaar, and Vogue.
Starr announced a new EP Ice Tea Liberace due out August 30th via PALACE. Alongside the announcement Starr shared empowering yet emotionally-raw lead single, “TOUCH XXX”. Starr’s indomitable vocals complemented by booming piano and electro-pop beats, serve as a sensational tease for the 4 song EP, featuring rebellious indie-pop about losing innocence and coming to terms with growing up.
