True Panther Sounds is excited to announce a new EP release from ABRA, Atlanta’s own “Darkwave Duchess,” for her PRINCESS EP, dropping Friday 15th July. The songwriter, producer, singer, and occasional rapper today shares her new single, ‘CRYBABY,’ via Soundcloud, which follows a recently released EP teaser video clip titled ‘COME 4 ME’. The full bio, tracklisting, artwork, and more can be found below.
ABRA is an outlier. Moving around with her missionary parents, she was born in New York and raised in South London, before eventually landing in Atlanta. Like her upbringing, ABRA’s music isn’t specific to a place, a time, or a sound. Instead, it’s a blend of influences, informed — but not defined — by its surroundings. Utilising different components of Miami Freestyle and electro-funk 808’s topped with her own airy R&B-tinged vocals, ABRA’s voice and sounds are familiar, but uniquely contemporary.
