The #queenoftheweek is songstress ABRA.
Her latest project,Princess EP came out last Friday and proved to be the perfect soundtrack to our boozy sunday brunch at home. Intricate beats and bacon with a side of heavy synth? Yes, please.
Who is ABRA?
Her second EP Rose introduced me to this queen. Released just a little over a year ago, it immediately left an impression of something I had never heard. Heavy beats that seem to take you on a vacation through space and time coasting on her airy vocals. ABRA is quickly becoming a pioneer of the New Generation of R&B artists under ambient/electronic influence and we are so here for it!
She spent the first eight years of her life in London before moving to Georgia with her family. She’s mentioned feeling like an outcast as a black girl with a british accent in her younger days allowing her to find comfort in her weirdness. Nicknamed the “darkwave duchess” she is a member of Atlanta based crew, Awful Records. She teamed up with the founder of Awful just two years ago and has been doing magic ever since. We look forward to what the Duchess has in store.
