new single out now
Loaded with pulsating hooks and enigmatic tenacious vocals, Annabel Allum oozes charisma and showcases an adept ability to marry folk-style storytelling with snarling fuzzy indie. The Guildford-based singer-songwriter has been backed across tastemaker platforms as one of the most vitally sarcastic voices in the indie scene, with praise coming from key press voices in The Independent, the Fader and The Line of Best Fit as well as on the airwaves. ‘Beat the Birds’, taken from 2018’s ‘Sorry I’m Not Perceptible’ EP, found its place on the Radio 1 BBC Introducing Playlist and she earned herself a spot on the lineup of BBC Music’s The Biggest Weekend in Swansea.
Huw Stephens is a vocal supporter of Annabel’s music and premiered her latest single ‘Fear Naught’ ahead of her Maida Vale live session. 'Fear Naught' also featured on Spotify's New Music Friday editorial playlist. 2018 saw Annabel perform at the likes of Boardmasters, Siren Festival, Neverworld and Reading Festival, and she embarked on her first UK headline tour on which she played her biggest headline show to date at The Moth Club in London. 2019 started with Allum heading into the studio to work on new material.
