Abbe May – Design Desire : Single Review
With a growing reputation as an intense and exciting live performer, Abbe May has created her own moody, guitar driven sound over the last four years. Displaying an exciting ability that has come together in stunning style, Abbe May has spent the past two years writing and recording her album Design Desire [out now].
Attracting comparisons to everyone from Portishead to Patti Smith, the music Abbe creates provides a unique soundscape of crunching guitars with a seductively haunting vocal.
The second single Design Desire is an electrical surge of scaling guitar riffs, coupled with Abbe’s multi layered, softly seductive vocals, Design Desire is brimming with sexual energy and attitude.
The video clip [above], directed by UK based Zena Loxton and filmed in a dried lake near Gin Gin in Western Australia, perfectly captures the duality that is Abbe May and provides yet another glimpse of the artist that will be revealed with the full Design Desire release later in 2011.
