Phebe Starr Offers A Bittersweet Ballad With “Lavender Scars”

Based on our SXSW interview with Phebe Starr, you’d never predict just how deep and emotional the happy-go-lucky singer can get, until you hear today’s release. 

“Lavender Scars” features a multi-layered synth pop buildup culminating in a glorious release around the 2:10 mark when Starr confidently proclaims, “It don’t hurt anymore.” We love that this song brings back fond memories of Imogen Heap, Frou Frou, and the likes.
