Today, Australian singer-songwriter Phebe Starr has premiered a new video with BlackBook for her tender yet powerful lead single “TOUCH XXX”. Starr's indomitable vocals and electro beats boom, while nostalgia for her past is shown between cuts of roses and dark shadows. With neo-noir elements, the video depicts love as it is lost and how broken relationships can become a fragile shell of something once so strong.

Initially debuted via NYLON, the song continues to generate positive buzz for the EP.
