LISTEN: Alice Phoebe Lou Goes Back To Basics On New Album ‘Child’s Play’

South African born, Berlin-based folk star Alice Phoebe Lou has cemented herself as an incredible storyteller. She finds beauty in the ordinary and brings her worldly passion to life through her music. The star has always honed in on making the lyrical content of her music the star of the show, and she continues to do just that on her fourth studio album ‘Child’s Play’.

Child’s Play reunites Lou with producer David Parry, who previously traveled to her adopted hometown of Berlin to record this year’s acclaimed Glow. Lou’s dream to record at Parry’s Vancouver Island studio lived on and in time, she – along with best friends and longtime musical partners Ziv Yamin (drums, keyboards) and Dekel Adin (bass) – were able to secure permission from Global Affairs Canada and flew to Victoria.

A two-week quarantine on beautiful Nanoose Bay allowed ample time to tie up loose ends before spending 10 days at Parry’s Dobro Genius studio. Working with the producer’s collection of analog gear and vintage instruments, Lou and her musical compatriots nurtured her recently composed songs into something altogether fresh, a natural evolution of sound and vision from her previous work.

“The process was simple and intuitive,” Lou says, “using an 8-track tape machine and allowing the very new songs to grow into themselves. We worked tirelessly on a limited schedule to bring these personal songs to life, so used to each other by now from recording Glow together that even though the workload was immense, it felt easy and enjoyable, the four of us very much on the same page.”

The album includes the stunning first track, ‘Underworld’. With its thumping rhythm and electrical storm energy, “Underworld” stands among Alice’s most affective tracks thus far, an intense outpouring of feelings describing the alternate world one exists in with another person when the connection transcends words.
