Alice Hubble releases ‘My Dear Friend’ on 7th July 2021 via London-based electronic-pop label Happy Robots. It is the second single to be taken from her forthcoming album Hexentanzplatz, to be released on September 10th.
With layered synths and a shuffling beat, the new single ‘My Dear Friend’ was inspired by discovering a collection of love letters that her mother wrote to her father around the time that they first got together. Says Alice “My mother passed away when I was in my teens and these letters gave me a real insight into who she was as a person, her in love giddiness jumping off the page. Sadly I’m still yet to find the replies from my father.”
Described as the work of ‘one lady at home with her enormous collection of synthesisers’, Alice Hubble mixes melancholic pop, layered vintage synths and elegant vocals, reminiscent of Ladytron, Ashra or Dubstar. Her debut album 'Polarlichter', inspired by the 70’s recordings of Tangerine Dream and Sally Oldfield, was released in 2019 to l acclaim. Earning the project support from the likes of BBC Radio 6 Music’s Steve Lamacq, Gideon Coe and Lauren Laverne, as well as Electronic Sound Magazine who placed the record in their Albums of the Year. Alice went on to play shows with acts including Damo Suzuki, Advance Base, Pram and Beak>.

Just signed up to all that is Bandcamp today and have just spent the last little while floating around looking for new music.
My little girl is happily getting into music and beginning to find her voice. I thought it would be nice for her to be inspired by local talent. ❤️
Looking forward to sharing your album with her. I hope she will cherish it forever. dirtpixel
