Mantra by Abigail Wyles
Abigail Wyles is the latest signing to the label of Chase & Status, MTA Records.
Abigail Wyles is currently working on her debut album which is expected to be released later in the year. Here we have a bass noir vibe which is also glossy and soulful. Soft dubstep if you like.A unique combination of sound similar to Lana Del Ray being produced by Burial. The first official taste of her work has the aura of pain, heartbreak but with a positive outlook in the end.
Along with her long time cohort, production partner and instrumentalist Holly Simpson, Abigail is crafting something very special indeed; a self-crafted sound that takes influence from singer songwriters whom she wholeheartedly admires – Marvin Gaye and Kate Bush to name a couple. With some honest, powerful music from the likes of Nina Simone, Fleetwood Mac and The Eurhythmics thrown into the mix, what the pair create for 2013 and beyond, is original, modern pop music — a sound that’s both dynamic and haunting in equal measure.
Holly and Abigail’s production develops around piano based melodies, crafting a unique soundscape, layering harmonies and live instrumentation with Abigail’s enigmatic voice leading the way. Indicative of their production style is ‘Mantra’ — a beautiful song that gently draws you in and swirls around your head and heart until it encapsulates you entirely.
If the debut offering is anything to go by, Abigail Wyles is 100% a name to watch in the coming months.
Quite an interesting piece of work, I would say.
Mantra by Abigail Wyles will be released by MTA Records this Summer
