Perhaps a little small-mindedly I’ve always kind of shoved indie-pop into the Brit Pop packet, as I find it’s a sound that quintessentially defines England in my opinion. That’s not to say that there isn’t a wave of bands scattered over the globe that pick up the reigns just as effectively. I’ve had my world coloured by indie power from the U.S, to Australia, France to Russia and Sweden, but by dearest regard I still hold a torch for the on-going Brit wave.
It is interesting to catch up with a new name though, and had I not been informed that ABBY were a German band based in Berlin, I would have instinctively assumed that they were British, such is their grasp of the twangy resonance and shimmery synth overlays, but there again, I have since found out that the four piece recorded their upcoming album in London, which clearly shows on new single “Streets”.
The band deal a card of chugging alt-pop that steams in a gritty pebble dashing of Two Door Cinema Club, Editors and Friendly Fires pizzazz. Indicating that ABBY would find favour with fans of any of those bands, but moreover, are suitably aligned with the British indie-pop market in the main.
