PHOEBE BRIDGERS RELEASES “MOTION SICKNESS” VIDEO

Phoebe Bridgers today debuted her video for “Motion Sickness”, the latest single from her forthcoming debut album Stranger In The Alps. The Justin Mitchell-directed clip can now be seen HERE. “I've had the idea for this video since before recording "Motion Sickness"" says Bridgers. “Probably inspired by my brother Jackson singing "Down With the Sickness" to me in karaoke with 100% commitment in an orange jumpsuit.”

Following a September North American tour supporting Conor Oberst, Bridgers will headline a show at Highland Park Ebell in her hometown of Los Angeles, CA on September 21st as well as at Baby’s All Right in Brooklyn, NY on October 4th. She’ll then head to the UK for a show at Oslo in Hackney, London on October 28th as part of Mirrors Festival (tickets are available here), with further UK shows TBA. Phoebe will then return home for a November tour with Noah Gundersen. A current itinerary is below.

 
Produced by Tony Berg and Ethan Gruska and mixed by Mike Mogis, the ten haunting and introspective songs on Stranger In The Alps further introduce the 22-year-old Bridgers as a singular voice. There is a delicate balance to her work, a dance between veiled narratives and earnest emotions, between whispers and shouts. Throughout the album, Bridgers contemplates and reflects on personal experiences through her unique lyric writing perspective: there are overt references to lost idols, canonical pop songs and actual incidents, but her stories unfold through specific, evocative imagery sung in her subtle, confessional style. According to Bridgers, everything you hear has arrived by feeling; her music is what comes when she is at her most honest, without specific intention, and she aims to be in her songs the person she is in the world.
 
Stranger In The Alps follows Bridgers’ 2015 three-song single “Killer”, produced by Ryan Adams in his L.A. studio and released on his Pax-Am label. Since early 2016, she’s toured with Julien Baker, Oberst (who also guests on the Stranger In The Alps track “Would You Rather”), and Adams, among others.

“I wasn’t trying to be too lo-fi, too hi-fi, too self-serious, too disingenuous… I feel pretty confident that I’m finding my voice,” says Bridgers. “I wanted the album to completely represent who I am and these songs are representative of what I set out to do.”
 
Stranger In The Alps follows Bridgers’ 2015 three-song single “Killer,” produced by Ryan Adams in his L.A. studio and released on Adams’ Pax-Am label. Since early 2016, she’s toured with Julien Baker, Conor Oberst (who also guests on Stranger In The Alps track “Would You Rather”), and Adams, amongst others.
 
Following a sold out show at London's St Pancras Old Church, Bridgers will head back on tour next month with a one-off show supporting Cat Power (solo) at Pioneer Park in Salt Lake City, UT, USA on August 17th, before joining up with Conor Oberst again in September. Bridgers is also confirmed to support Noah Gundersen in the US in November.

“SMOKE SIGNALS”

 

Phoebe Bridgers has signed to Dead Oceans, who will release the debut album by the Los Angeles-based songwriter later this year.
 
The 22 year-old Bridgers’ released her recent single, “Smoke Signals” in early January 2017, and in turn drew high praise from  The Los Angeles Times. “Smoke Signals” is a breathtaking track that manages effortlessly to be a wounded love song as well as a five-and-a-half minute kiss-off to a generally cataclysmic 2016. 
 
Writing songs since the age of 11, Bridgers spent her teenage years performing at open mic nights and busking throughout her hometown before recording a debut three-song EP, “Killer,” with Ryan Adams in his L.A. studio. The EP was released on Adams’ Pax-Am label in the spring of 2015.
 
Bridgers has spent much of spring 2017 on the road with Conor Oberst in the UK, US and abroad and today announced a new run of US support shows with him for September. First, she will head to the UK and Europe for a June 28th show supporting Whitney in Paris as well as headline dates in Amsterdam on July 4th and at London’s St Pancras Old Church on July 5th (tickets are available here).
 
More news on Bridgers’ debut album will be announced soon.
