LP version. Polarlichter is the debut album from Alice Hubble. It's an album of melancholic pop layered by vintage synths and elegant vocals. Alice Hubble is the new solo project of London based Alice Hubley and the product of one lady locked at home with her enormous collection of synthesizers. The album Polarlichter was born out of a desire to work on a project without constraints, to move away from the traditional song writing process and to experiment with the form. Inspired by the '70s recordings by Tangerine Dream, Ashra, and Kraftwerk, Alice wanted put a distinctly feminine take on the '70s Germanic synth sound. Other inspirations included Delia Derbyshire, Daphne Oram, Lee Hazlewood's Swedish recordings, '80s American synth pop band The Book of Love, and contemporary acts like Jane Weaver and Goldfrapp. Constructing and sketching riffs on her iPad during monotonous train journeys throughout the country, Alice built up her fragmentary ideas using vintage synthesizers and a mellotron creating something majestic, and sweeping. The album offers a soundscape of pastoral solace, far removed the urban sprawl. Includes "Goddess" named as Steve Lamacq's Single of 2019.
