Alice Phoebe Lou is a Berlin-based singer-songwriter from Cape Town, South Africa. Not too long ago, she released a music video for her “Galaxies” single.
Alice Phoebe Lou – “Galaxies”
“‘Galaxies’ is the tale of a fallen star, who has ended up living a regular life on earth. There’s no denying that out-of-this-world themes and galactic dreams are intrinsic within Alice and her music. We think of our dear friend as a star, in all forms of the word. So in this video, we wanted to portray the highs and lows of such a journey. The music video was shot with a loving micro crew over two days in between a ‘space’ in Berlin and an ex-military Soviet training ground just out of the city.” – Chloë Lewer & Andrea Ariel
The Chloë Lewer- and Andrea Ariel-directed music video showcases Alice in a surreal, dreamlike landscape, coupled with animated designs by Hagen Schönfeld.
‘Galaxies’ was produced by Grammy Award-winning producer Noah Georgeson (Devendra Banhart, Joanna Newsom). It is featured on Alice Phoebe Lou’s upcoming “Paper Castles” album, available March 22, 2019.
The easy-going tune contains an abstract storyline, dreamy vocals, and minimal instrumentation flavored with experimental, alternative, and electro-jazz elements.

“This song is about being nothing and everything. About being overwhelmed by the weight of existence while simultaneously being in awe and wonder of it all. ‘Galaxies’ came to life the first time we played in the Planetarium in Berlin. We’ve played 13 shows there now. And every time I see the visuals come to life and the audience being swept away by the combination of the song with the projections of flying through the galaxies, the song makes so much sense.” – Alice Phoebe Lou
Not too long ago, Alice Phoebe Lou sold out two Cape Town shows in February 2019.
Shortly afterward, she announced a series of live shows in Europe and North America.
Her forthcoming ‘Paper Castles’ tour will include an album party show @ EartH in Hackney London on April 17, 2019.
“Happened on a rainy moody day in Berlin. My friend Harry Charles and I wrote this song while lying on the carpet of my room. Space had become such a theme in my life and music, not in a scientific way but more in a metaphorical sense. Drawing parallels between a planet in the expansive universe and the way that one’s tiny and seemingly insignificant existence interacts with the world.” – Alice Phoebe Lou
