Phoenix Martins has shared her new EP 47. Martins’ beats are beautiful in their simplicity, each note is perfectly placed. Confident but not showy – Phoenix is a phenomenally exciting talent. This is widescreen, cinematic music. Sparse and ethereal, the EP transcends genre.
Discussing the 47, Phoenix said: “47' is my angel number, about a year ago, I started seeing the numbers 4 & 7 everywhere, digital clocks, whenever I looked at my phone it would be 7.47 etc. Even when I would look round at a door number it would be 47, car registration plates, literally everywhere. So I looked it up and the numbers translated as inner-wisdom, enlightenment, mysticism, individualism, spiritual awakening and that I am on the right path in life… Retrospectively each song is an individual reflective discovery of all my experiences while undergoing this spiritual journey.”
47 is out now. You can listen to it here
