Alice Phoebe Lou is the goosebumps tingling on your skin making absolutely sure you feel the depths of her words. Heavy truths wander through her airy melodies. She treads gracefully along the thin veil of authenticity we suppress through the universal understanding that “this is just the way life is”. Her raw emotional take on our delicate existence turns our attention to the corroding reality of our destructive tendencies. There is a massive amount of strength that flows through her gentle music and it is not to be absorbed lightly. We mustn't underestimate the power behind a gentle song for it is more difficult to channel these sorts of things in this manner than to throw ourselves in anger at the state we find ourselves in over and over again.
“Society” is a song made to leave a deep impression. It is a reminder of our blind acceptance. A song grasping at our intuition and nudging us awake to what lies beyond the face value of what we are told. If you have ever felt the urge to pull yourself away from the complex collective web known as society, you are far from alone. Create your own web of your desired existence and Alice will be the specs of melodic dust in the air, floating through her own web alongside you. I am awake and continuing to expand my own web to wander beyond the realm of constructed possibilities. I will place her words in handwritten journals for continued reflection because they remind me to continue the discovery of what it means to be alive. Preferably alive and giggling.

About The Curator - Maria Fish
You can most often find Maria in her garden humming along to an eclectic playlist titled “Life’s a Garden, Dig It” and of course tending to her beloved kale. Shout out to Joe Dirt for the wise words and fantastic playlist name. This garden is located on the island of Kaua’i at her childhood home surrounded by tropical fruit trees and flowers. Beautiful music has always gone hand in hand with the beauty of the island. Just as she nurtures her plants, she looks forward to nurturing this playlist and the community of music lovers that feel like stopping by and having a listen.
