ABRA Brings Her Downtempo R&B Vibes To AMF The Darkwave Duchess Cast A Mysterious Spell On All My Friends
LOS ANGELES, CA-
“… Hailing from Atlanta, Abra was the next act we were able to catch. I’ve been on keen to catch Abra live as her mysteriously downtempo R&B has always made me do a second take whenever he song popped up randomly on a Spotify playlist I happened to be listening to during work.
I think her performance could have benefited from an evening slot (or an indoor stage) insofar as a “darker” setting could have accentuated the mood of her heavier sound- she’s been dubbed the “Darkwave Duchess” after all- but I was pleased with what I heard and saw. It was “bedroom pop” at it’s core; moody and sensual. Her R&B imbued music seemed genuine and personal, and undulated with its love bass lines.
I had heard a lot about her getting her noticed initially on Youtube with acoustic covers of hit songs and I was kind of hoping that she could have performed a song stripped down which I think could have added another dimension to her festival performance, but perhaps that’ll have to wait another time …”
