Phoebe Twigg brings emotion to electronic music. She beatifully lays dark, moody beats over ethereal synths and haunting vocals which immerse you as the enigmatic vibe grows. I asked her 10 questions about her creative hobbies, musical inspiration and her upcoming EP ahead of her set at The Ladies Live.
What are three words you would use to describe your musical style?
Ominous, atmospheric and emotional.
What’s the best gig you’ve ever played?
WOMB nightclub in Tokyo.
If you could share a stage with anyone, who would it be?
Wow thats a tough one, I’d have to say Moby…I still find so much relevance in Moby’s music, he’s a bit of a genius…I’ve watched videos about his studio, he has so much lush equipment.
What are your top three tracks released this year by female musicians?
Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith – Stratus
T-EA – Pencak Silat
HAJ300 – 777 Simcity
Where is your go-to location to feel inspired?
The depths of my mind.
Where can you usually be found on a Saturday night?
Lately I’ve been spending most nights between the studio or at home in my bedroom/makeshift studio, filling the in-between time with 90’s tv shows and Korean/Japanese horror films.
What are your other creative hobbies?
I love creating! for me, it’s the most important part of existing.
When I’m not making music I love to write poetry, paint landscapes and draw.
Is there any other musical genre you’d like to explore in the future?
I’d love to be able to make heavier electronic stuff, I want that change to be organic though, I have no aspirations of emulating a specific genre, so I’ll see where the journey takes me.
What’s the best thing about being a musician and what’s the most challenging thing?
In any creative field I think its common to struggle with self doubt, especially as a solo artist, that’s probably been the most challenging but the most rewarding to overcome, once you believe in yourself, the possibilities are limitless.
Other than The Ladies Live, do you have any shows coming up?
The most important thing for me at the moment is spending most of my time finishing my EP, I’ve also got a couple of collabs and remixes i’m working on and a few more live shows in the works.
