Avant-garde vocalist, electronics innovator and post-punk artist Phew, first came to the fore as the vocalist of Japanese post-punk group Aunt Sally before going on to record a solo single with Ryuichi Sakamoto. Her 1981 self-titled album, recorded with Liebezeit and Holger Czukay, was engineered by Conny Plank, and was followed by 1987’s View.

Phew rarely looks backwards and the latest phase of her career – first heard on the Japan-only release New World (2015) and more recently on albums that include 2021’s New Decade (Mute), numerous sold-out cassette releases, and the compilations Vertigo KO (Disciples, 2020) and Vertical Jamming (Disciples vinyl edition, 2022) – has delivered a powerful new distillation of Phew’s artistic voice.
