REBE, one of the most promising artists of the DIY movement in Spain, is a songwriter and singer from Madrid, who has been making a lot of noise in the “Millennial” and “gen Z” world, with great impact on social networks. A singular artist with her own aesthetic, she says she doesn’t know how to insert her work as part of any musical style, however, the dream pop stamp of bedroom is evident, revering in her creations the comfort of her bedroom, transporting us to her intimate universe of fairies, flowers and glitter. REBE has created a character that is sweet and angelic, but at the same time very sensual and feminine. She has been called the “lo-fi princess”. In fact, we can identify a very strong musical heritage through her songs, and by the way she presents herself in her videos, influences from Spanish classic ballads and great artists of that time like Lola Flores or Jeanette, while showing awareness of the music that is made nowadays.

Expressive, intimate, devout, blunt, free, generous, heartfelt, grateful, deeply passionate, and fearlessly human music.
