Abbe May - Design Desire (2011)

Received the album from a PR company (thank you!) and it reminded me I found this track on a blog a while back – been meaning to post it, so here it is:

Getting back into the rock lately – from this song alone Abbe May exhibits the sass of “Trick Pony” by Charlotte Gainsbourg or “Get Some” by Lykke Li – in a similar fuzzy sultry-rock style, with a soft edge on the vocal.

Abbe May – Mammalian Locmotion

She’s Australian, from Perth, and her full length, Design Desire, was released on 8th July on Source Music.

Funnily, her Myspace says she was influenced by Screamin’ Jay Hawkins!

Lead single from the album is “Taurus Chorus”, which has a similar swing to it to this track, and “Carolina” is a little more sinister.

Taking me back to proper rock.

Looking out for news of London gigs…official site here.
