Rebebe, the enigmatic force of alt-pop, graced the music scene just last year with her debut offering, ‘What Are You Into’. The five-track masterpiece unveiled a prodigious 20-year-old artist, armed with a kaleidoscope of musical brilliance.
Rebebe’s songwriting prowess exudes a delightful blend of humour, poignancy, and unadulterated authenticity. But it doesn’t end there; her celestial voice takes listeners on an ethereal journey, simultaneously confident and restless, as if teetering on the edge of a wild frenzy.
Prepare to embark on a mind-bending expedition through the extraordinary universe of Rebebe, where introversion gives way to extroversion and reality becomes an enigmatic puzzle of pure imagination. Just when you think you’ve got it all figured out, Rebebe throws unexpected twists and turns your way, leaving you both exhilarated and bewildered.
Building on the triumph of ‘What Are You Into’, which spawned widely acclaimed singles like ‘DVDs’ and ‘Prozac’, Rebebe is now unleashing her latest EP, aptly titled ‘Deserving’. Brace yourself for five new tracks that defy predictability, unravelling tales of restlessness, comfort, cynicism, joy, and unapologetic pride.
“Every song serves as a critique of either myself or the occurrences I’ve witnessed. But fear not, dear listeners, for they are told with an unwavering sense of optimism. Despite the world’s howling chaos, hope remains an essential anchor,” declares Rebebe, her voice tinged with passion and conviction. She goes on to explain her creative vision for ‘Deserving’:
“The soundscapes on this EP take a more rational stroll, shedding any excess baggage. Strangely enough, the pursuit of feeling good has been an incredibly inspiring force. Clarity has emerged from the shadows, and 2023 feels like a year of hibernation on the cusp of blossoming into vibrant life.”
Leading the charge is the mesmerizing piano-driven opus, ‘Tissue’, its sonic tapestry resembling a slushy ice sculpture, a frozen tongue playfully wagging at the obliviousness of privilege. Every track on ‘Deserving’ is an intricate creation, meticulously crafted by Rebebe herself, with assistance from the brilliant co-producer Villads Øster, known for his work with the internationally acclaimed indie pop outfit, Liss.
Prepare to be spellbound as Rebebe’s music takes you on a wondrous odyssey through the realms of sound and emotion. With ‘Deserving’, she fearlessly paves her own path, defying conventions and challenging our perception of reality. As you surrender yourself to the sonic waves and lyrical tapestries of this extraordinary EP, let Rebebe’s music envelop you in its embrace, whispering secrets of vulnerability, resilience, and unyielding artistic spirit.
