REVIEW: ABBE MAY

Now here’s a lass who’s not afraid to be mean, not afraid to be ugly and refuses to be categorised.

Corny, nauseating love songs with this one? No way. She’s more likely to to feed you with a vicious slice of doom pop. Her new release T.R.O.U.B.L.E., a track born from a non-stop experimental year of recording with just a mellatron and a drum machine, is no exception. A mid tempo electro beat led by an enchanting, dipped in reverb falsetto instantly echos Kate Bush’s vocal range and Shakespeare’s Sister’s undertones.

With attitude in abundance; this girl’s brave, cool and won’t take any shit. And that’s exactly why we love her.
