Over the last near-decade, Phebe Starr has blossomed into one of Australian indie-pop’s defining songwriters; someone who validates and comforts her fans through detailed and personal lyricism, best shown through the three EPs that litter her discography thus far. Within that time, she’s also become one of Australia’s most accomplished, working behind-the-scenes to uplift the next generation of musicians while music of her own becomes applauded by Rolling Stone and soundtracks Samsung Galaxy adverts alike, accumulating millions of streams all as an independent and self-driven artist.
Now, Phebe Starr has her eyes on her biggest accomplishment yet: her debut album. Scheduled for release in February 2022, Heavy Metal Flower Petal strips back the layers of Phebe Starr’s identity and sees her move forward with newfound self-realisations behind her.
It’s a powerful masterclass of Phebe Starr’s musical and personal journeys, and an album sure to lift the musician to the highest echelon of homegrown songwriters.
