Phebe Starr Is A Heartbreak Outlaw in “Bad News” Video | ‘Ice Tea Liberace’ EP Out 8/30

Today, Australian indie-pop outlaw Phebe Starr has premiered a new song “Bad News”, alongside a music video animated by Brisbane artist HelenaPapageorgiou. Written as a response to someone who told Starr “I thought you would eventually change,” the video finds Starr holding her ground, confident and honest as she sings about the fight of staying true to herself in a relationship. The track comes after lead single “TOUCH XXX”, off Starr’s highly-anticipated Ice Tea Liberace EP due out August 30 on PALACE.

Starr speaks candidly of her inspiration behind the song,“…I guess don’t fuck with a songwriter. I’ve constantly been expected to play a role. I think a lot of women have these expectations placed on us. Labels make people feel safe. Social identities make people feel like they have control over life. I’ve learnt those people may feel safe but they aren’t free. I’ve learnt that being outcasted for who you are is more enjoyable than being accepted for something you’re not.”
