ANNABEL ALLUM – RICH BACKGROUNDS
Guildford-based singer-songwriter Annabel Allum has announced the release of brand new single ‘Rich Backgrounds’. Expanding from her folk roots into slacker territory, Allum signals a real statement of intent with blistering riffs and frenetic vocals on display throughout ‘Rich Backgrounds’ heralding a distinct change in style.
Discussing the release, Annabel states: “’Rich Backgrounds’ was the easiest track to write on the EP. It came out in one, which rarely happens for me. It started out as an alcohol-induced jam, it was kind of sarcastic but then I started to find a lot of enjoyment out of playing it. It’s not necessarily ragging on rich people, but more rich attitudes. I wanted to bring those kids back down to earth a bit – yes you may have all the materialistic un-necessities, but do you have all the un-materialistic necessities? Stripped bare, could you survive? Mental demeanour, a slight bitterness and the idea that paper is not truth.”
