beat the birds
new single out now
Guildford-based Annabel Allum launches into 2018 with new single Beat the Birds. By turns invigoratingly caustic and charmingly lackadaisical, Annabel’s first release since the acclaimed ‘All That For What’ EP came out last year is further evidence of her ability to marry folk-style storytelling with snarling fuzzy indie. Supporting the iconic Beth Ditto across her UK/EU tour at the back end of last year, as well as sharing the stage with Nadine Shah, Blaenavon and more.
With acoustic demos synced to the upcoming feature film Spaceship (BFI, BBC, SXSW) and acting in the movie itself, it is clear that the artistic value of Annabel Allum is not limited to just one medium. Her original look and self-styling has also gained Annabel a lot of attention on social media, with an ever growing Instagram following she has received endorsements from Bastian Classics, Cheap Monday & various indie clothing brands for her to represent online.
Releasing her debut single Tricks in July 2016, Annabel Allum received multiple spot plays on BBC Radio 6 Music from the likes of Tom Robinson and Melita Dennett, as well as gaining support from DIY Magazine, The 405, and longtime fans The Line Of Best Fit and Gold Flake Paint. After selling out her single launch and debut London headline show at 229, Annabel's live credibility only increases.
