Having been Triple J’s Unearthed ‘featured artist’ only last week, Phebe Starr is definitely turning heads with her fantastic form of melodic pop in ‘Alone With You‘.
Phebe’s vocals are pretty outstanding, and ‘Alone With You’ has managed to be successfully built around this fact. She manages to convey multiple feelings in her voice, being sweet, melancholy and being able to give such an emotional warmth and context through her music. The other thing that I really like about ‘Alone With You’, is the fantastic switch between the initial period of reflective vocals and entry into the massive drum dominated climax. Its epic.
Her debut ‘Pink Lemonade’ was pretty good, but ‘Alone With You’ shows Phebe Starr is taking pretty big steps. Just a quick heads up Kimbra, there is a pretty good new kid on the block!!!
