Annabel Allum released ‘Rich Backgrounds’
/ 27 February 2017

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.

Following the release of her debut single Tricks in July 2016, the songstress received early support from the online community and airplay on the likes of BBC 6 Music and Radio X, whilst her original look and self-styling has already lead to endorsements from Bastian Classics, Cheap Monday and various other indie clothing brands.

Having supported acts including Big Deal and Blaenavon over the past twelve months, Annabel’s live reputation continues to grow and her debut US performances at SXSW next month are sure to see her profile enhanced even further.

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.”

Produced by Adrian Hall (Goldfrapp, Du Blonde, Anna Calvi) Annabel Allum’s Rich Backgrounds was released on 24th February via Killing Moon Records and will be available on iTunes and Spotify.
