Reliably informed

Lucky Me, Phoebe Green’s debut album, was released in August and even the most cursory listen would be enough to identify the vulnerable themes at its core: the heartbreak, anxieties, outright fears, regrets and resentments. Every personal trait scrutinised, chastised and hopefully a learning experience. It could be, you know, kind of a lot, yet cocooned in fat bouncy electro beats and shiny synth washes her ‘lucky me’ manta keeps lifting things up as she assuredly spills her guts.

One thing that you can guarantee is that seeing Green live when she plays The Cluny on Monday 28th November, is an experience full of energy, raw honesty and catharsis. Think about Robyn’s Dancing On My Own as a communal bonding sad bop – it’s the sort of killer electro tune Green’s album is packed with – the collective shared emotions dissipating like a form of crowd-sourced therapy. There are also moments in her music that evoke the kitchen sink ordinariness of the Pet Shop Boys but getting glitzed up, ready for a show and a damn good dance.

You’ll grin, your heart might break and there may be tears; Phoebe Green is a rare artist capable of touching every emotion easily as she’s figuring herself out in front of everyone.
