Released: 19.08.22







Phoebe Green has created an album that is torn between a club-classic of the early 2000’s and an introspective post-modern dissection of the human experience. I found myself revisiting first break-up memories with this quietly emotional album that somehow made me believe dancing was the only cure. This hip-hop, synth pop blend of behavioural analysis creates thirteen bass-filled tracks where her soft voice carries with a gentle kind of strength.

Green describes the song Crying In The Club as ‘sad bop, and I think that perfectly encapsulates the entire album. Break My Heart eases the listener into both the self-reflective themes and the power of a beat, but the penultimate track Leach pulls out all the stops with fast needles and haunting vocals.
