Since its initial release it was a given that “Something Holy” was a magical piece by Berlin-based artist Alice Phoebe Lou. Carrying the intent to be seen past the eyes and through the mind, the independent artist’s single from her 2018 album, Paper Castles, propelled a vast amount of support between the relationship between self, body, and spirit, especially felt from her accompanying video. Now, what was seen as impossible to replicate or even highlight a different aspect of the track, Lou and her band share a live performance at the Funkhaus with the Feature Choir of Berlin, originally recorded late last year.
Accompanied by her band — Dekel Adin (bass), Ziv Yamin (piano and synths), Julian Berann (drums), and Michael Tezak (guitar) — the live performance is a striking version of what is already a gorgeous and potent composition. Flawlessly performed and expelled by Lou’s emotive vocals, the real beaut comes in the direction of the video. Steadicam Operator, Yoshua Berkowitz and camera assistant, Diego Sapienza take lead of the video and show the weight of the track through it’s traveling wide shots. Sincerity weeps from the dim light of the studio with Lou peaking in and out from focal point between the audience and the choir.
Alice Phoebe Lou has a slew of events coming up throughout Europe and North America.
