It’s impossible to describe ABRA’s music without being reductive, but in an attempt, her musicality sits somewhere between r’n’b and new wave pop- her distinct vocals like nothing heard before. With the lyrics that are universally binding, and production values that blow other contemporaries out of the water, she has gained a small but dedicated following down under. You worry though, that the first time seeing a musician with such tight production values and seemingly boundless talent, that in live performance, the illusion be broken. But ABRA does not disappoint. Even beyond the wild rapture and the sheer thrill of singing along and crashing into others down in the front row, what she makes of the Corner Hotel’s limitations is a theatrical and mind blowing thing matched only by a live performance that is better than ABRA’s recorded work.
ABRA performed as part of Red Bull Music Academy’s Road to Weekender
