Exclusive: Stream Phia's excellent new EP, The Woman Who Counted The Stars

A wonderful mesh of indie, pop, rock and electronic sounds across five tracks.

This Friday will see the release of Berlin-via-Melbourne singer/songwriter Phia's new EP, The Woman Who Counted The Stars, and we're excited to give you a little listen to it a few days early. Blending indie sounds both pop and electronic, it follows on fairly quickly from her debut album The Ocean Of Everything, and was born in part after reading a post from one of her inspirations: “Late last year Björk released a viral Facebook post about the criticism she and other female artists face when their subject matter departs from boyfriends and love songs towards atoms, galaxies or activism. I was enraged and also inspired and the songs just started to come.”

The end results speak for themselves: a five track release showcasing a powerful young artist unafraid to experiment with her sound, at times playful, always mature and intriguing. Take a listen below (click on the Bandcamp embed anywhere to get it started), and catch her live at one of the dates down the bottom:
