Manchester’s Abbie Ozard releases new EP ‘Water Based Lullabies’ today via House Anxiety(Genesis Owusu, carpetgarden, Bad Boy Chiller Crew; formerly King Krule, Courtney Barnett, Vagabon). It’s an eclectic, invigorating 7-track collection that establishes Abbie as one of the buzziest rising stars in the UK right now.
Throughout the EP Abbie experiments with her distinct, characterful indie-pop sound. Downtempo single ‘Grown’ set the foundations for an evolution in approach, born out of Abbie’s own personal and musical development, and anthemic singles ‘Pisces’ and ‘Rose Tinted’ take things to explosive new levels. Moving beyond bedroom origins, listeners can trace elements inspired by the likes Phoebe Bridgers, Wolf Alice or Folklore/Evermore without losing her ear for a life-affirming hook. “I love that no two of my singles are sounding the same in this era,” Abbie explains, “The last thing I want to be is predictable. I feel like genre isn’t really a thing anymore and when I remind myself of that I feel like I can express myself creatively and have the freedom to make whatever music I want.”
The ‘Water Based Lullabies’ EP is now via House Anxiety, available on all platforms, plus on limited edition 12-inch vinyl with exclusive fanzine bundle available to order now via the following link and check out the EP, ‘Water Based Lullabies’ via your preferred streaming service.
