Phoebe Bridgers Signs to Dead Oceans; Hear “Smoke Signals” Now

A few weeks ago when we saw Conor Oberst at the Moody Theater, we were impressed by the restrained yet powerful songwriting and excellent vocal abilities of opener Phoebe Bridgers. Which is why we were excited to hear today’s news that Bridgers has added her name to the excellent roster of artists on label Dead Oceans. With the promise of a debut album on the way, Bridgers will support Conor Oberst on another string of U.S. dates in September. Recent single “Smoke Signals” builds on a quiet tension provided by somber, sustained violin and Bridgers’ restless, galloping vocal pattern as she sings: “All of our problems, I’m gonna solve them, with you riding shotgun, speeding because fuck the cops.” Check out the video for the song below, and read more about Bridgers on Dead Oceans’ website.
