Phoebe Bridgers might be a relativly new artist, but she already has an impeccable CV. Her debut three-song single, Killer, was produced and released by Ryan Adams, she’s toured with Conor Oberst and Julien Barker, and is set to release her debut album on the excellent Dead Oceans Records . That album, “Strangers In The Alps”, is out next month, and ahead of the release this week Phoebe has shared the video to her latest single, “Motion Sickness”.

Building around reverberating guitars and driving drum beats, Motion Sickness has a touch of The War On Drugs, if they were fronted by Mackenzie Scott or Hazel English. Lyrically it seems to deal with trying to escape the ups and downs of a struggling relationship, as Phoebe sings, “there are no words in English I can sing to drown you out”.The video, directed by Justin Miller, was apparently inspired by Phoebe’s, “brother Jackson singing “Down With the Sickness” to me in karaoke with 100% commitment in an orange jumpsuit”, it is predictably excellent.

Phoebe Bridgers is a musician with a hugely bright future and more importantly if it all sounds good it’ll be thoroughly deserved. Stranger In The Alps is out September 22nd via Dead Oceans.
