Divine confidence and frantic vibrato
With an otherworldly voice and unfiltered lyrics, 20-year-old Rebebe arrives as one to watch on the blooming alt-pop scene.
She grabs your attention from the very first note. Rebebe has got a voice so full of presence and unexpected intonations, constantly shifting between divine confidence and frantic vibrato. It might sound schizo but Rebebe is without a doubt a singular artist with a multifaceted mind.
Compelling? Indeed. There’s a good chance Rebebe is going to be your new favourite alt-pop drug – and ‘Prozac’ is the first addiction. It’s a spellbinding introduction to a lyrical universe of a young woman who channels her own reality with pure imagination.
“‘Prozac’ is about being in a relationship based on mutual exploitation of each other, knowing that even though you’re a real piece of work, you’re still more than welcome to come and disturb me. This is your life and for some reason you don’t want to change a thing… Truth is it’s a need – a selfish necessity for both of you,” Rebebe says.
Rebebe began writing and producing her own songs years ago and when she decided to upload some early demo tapes on Soundcloud, her genre-fluid sound instantly made the comments section red hot. Her first official release, ‘DVDs’, came out this August and more is to come from the Copenhagen newcomer.
‘Prozac’ is co-produced by Villads Øster of internationally acclaimed indie pop-outfit, Liss, with whom Rebebe is currently finishing up a debut-EP set to be released on October 28th via Danish independent label, Stellar Records.
