Simultaneously an emblem of the past and a curtain drawn open towards the future, Lou Rebecca’s uncanny pop sensibilities are a powerhouse to be reckoned with. With her delicate, silky voice enticing you in both English and her native French, Lou’s inherent knack for captivating performances and choreography have immediately won over audiences in the synth scene for the last several years. Released last week on Austin, Texas’ Holodeck Records, Lou’s long awaited self-titled debut encompasses infectious pop-ballads and dreamy dance anthems to conjure the romantic in all of us. Her self-directed music video for the first track off her EP, “Tonight”, stars both Lou and Ramesh Srivastava (frontman of Austin’s indie-pop band Ramesh) in grainy sandscapes and low-lit nights at the bar. Her lingering eyes and ethereal moves pair flawlessly with the scenic lapping ocean and hazy shadows, adding vibrancy and intimacy in her harmonious craft. You can purchase her self-titled release in 12″ vinyl or cassette off Holodeck’s website.
