CD Review: Stranger in the Alps by Phoebe Bridgers
The latest in a string of fantastic albums blurring the line between alt-country and auto-biographical indie rock, Phoebe Bridgers’ debut Stranger in the Alps is a distillation of the enigmatic nature of relationship-driven society.
Though only 23, Bridgers view of the world is tinted in rose and shaded in melancholy as she traverses with intimate and referential lyricism, laced over simple string-and-piano melodies and not once missing a beat.
In short, Stranger in the Alps is a summation of the millennial malaise. It’s solemn and vibrant, and a stunning debut that revels in the quiet spaces between us and others.
