Polarlichter is the debut album from Alice Hubble. It's an album of melancholic pop layered by vintage synths and elegant vocals.

Includes `Goddess' named as Steve Lamacq's Single of 2019. Alice Hubble is the new solo project of London based Alice Hubley and the product of one lady locked at home with her enormous collection of synthesisers.

The album 'Polarlichter' was born out of a desire to work on a project without constraints, to move away from the traditional song writing process and to experiment with the form.

Inspired by the 70's recordings by Tangerine Dream, Ashra and Kraftwerk, Alice wanted put a distinctly feminine take on the 70's Germanic synth sound.

Other inspirations included Delia Derbyshire, Daphne Oram, Lee Hazlewood's Swedish recordings, 80's American synth pop band The Book of Love and contemporary acts like Jane Weaver and Goldfrapp.

Constructing and sketching riffs on her iPad during monotonous train journeys throughout the country.

Alice built up her fragmentary ideas using vintage synthesisers and a mellotron creating something majestic, and sweeping.

The LP offers a soundscape of pastoral solace, far removed the urban sprawl.
