Nottingham based roots artist Abi Moore has stormed back onto the scene with her most experimental album to date.
‘Livin Underground’ kicks things off, the vocals and hand claps easing us in before the distorted guitars find themselves in the driving seat. It’s a simple yet catchy melody to start off with.
Piano ballad ‘Apologies And Promises’ is a particular highlight on this record, it really showcases Moore’s vocal range as she begins deep before switching to her head voice. There’s a rawness to the recording of this track. On the other hand, ‘Lost And Found’ with it’s four to the floor kick drum, distorted guitar and harmonica will feel at home in a busy bar or festival this year. She has a number of dates around the UK this summer following the release of the album.
Moore leaves us with the question ‘Are You Listening?’ Which sees string instruments and backing vocals really bring the track to life. Well, yes Abi, we’re certainly listening now.
