Alice Phoebe Lou knows that there is nothing stronger than a woman and she shows us why in the video, “She”
If you know the name Alice Phoebe Lou, you should be very familiar with the song, “She.” The power of the song is in its stripped down simplicity. Strings and subtle synths are all Phoebe needs to lift her spell-bounding voice as she coos “she.”
The video takes very similar cues. Foregoing colour for film noir and moving from underwater to outer-space scenes, the female body in all its strength is the sole star of this show.
“My song “She” is different from any other song I’ve written,” Lou wrote us via statement. “It’s a high-energy anthem, recorded live to keep the original intention intact, with simple and repetitive lyrics that have a sense of powerful femininity behind them, inspired by women who go against the prescribed boundaries and pave the way for other women to be empowered and realise their strengths.”
“It was born being played on the streets of Berlin and it feels incredible to release it into the world, at a time that feels just right, as woman everywhere tell their stories and are heard.” Berlin is an important part of the “She” story. Back in October of 2016, Alice Phoebe Lou played the Silent Green and the Passionskirche in Berlin. The video for these performances now sits at over 3 million hits on YouTube.
“She” appears on Alice Phoebe Lou’s 2016 debut album, Orbit. It also appears on the soundtrack for the German film, Genial Goddess: The Story of Hedy Lamarr for which it was shortlisted for an Academy Award for Best Original Song.
The official video for “She” is here and reads like a film itself and you can watch it right now below.
