New Video: Introducing the Ethereal and Plaintive Pop of French Artist Phoebe


Phoebe is an emerging  Paris-based singer/songwriter, who can trace some of the origins of her music career to learning piano at the Olivier Messiaen Conservatory. After her training, the French artist began to write her own original material, inspired by Jhene Aiko and Sabrina Claudio. Last year, the emerging French artist wrote and recorded her debut EP Flowered, which is slated for an October release through L4 Sourc3 Records. 

The EP’s latest single “How Much” is an atmospheric bit of contemporary pop centered around stuttering trap beats, shimmering synths, ethereal electronics and the emerging French artist’s achingly tender and sensual vocals. But underneath the contemporary electronic production sheen, the song is an intimate peek into its creator’s inner world — including her doubts and uncertainties — with an unvarnished honesty.

Directed by Loïck Tchouta, the recently released, swooningly cinematic visual for “How Much” reveals an aptly intimate and hazy world that’s both romantic and decidedly French.
