If Saturday Night Live gave awards Phoebe Bridgers would get one after last night’s performance. But don’t worry, she’s up for four Grammys that are scheduled for March 14, 2021, and there’s an excellent chance she is going to win one, or two…or four. If you watch the video from SNL, you’ll see why.
At only 26-years-old, Phoebe is an expression of the best that indie rock has to offer — creative freedom! Phoebe performed two songs on the show: “Kyoto“ and “I Know The End.” She proved that her style is completely hers and she owned that stage like nobody’s business.
Now, the video for the second song that she performed “I Know The End” is going viral.
The song starts sweet and mellow with Phoebe delivering each word in soft, breathy tones. Her lyrics are modern prose that could just as easily be recited in a poetry jam as they are melodically sung. It is the end of the song where the music switches gears and Phoebe shows off her guitar skills.
After she reaches the final chorus, Phoebe began jamming on her guitar, started moving around the stage, and had a guitar duel with one of her band members. Phoebe then fell to her knees in true rocker fashion while continuing to jam on her guitar. She then let out a wild, guttural scream in an ode to the true punk-rock senior citizens who paved the way in the genre.
Swinging her guitar overhead she smashed that puppy as if Pete Townshend was sitting in the front row cheering her on. It was a bit of the best of all worlds (indie, hard rock, and punk) in one smashing show.
