BEST NEW SONGS: ABRA - BOUNTY

1/1/17

Awful Records artist ABRA is gaining some much deserved hype with her sultry hypnotic sound that truly shines on her new track, “Bounty.” It features a stripped-down ticking beat, soft electronics, and her silky smooth R&B-style vocals that keep you in a hypnotic trance throughout the 5 minute duration. The track slowly builds with subtle vocal effects, warming atmospherics, and electro-pop elements that add a nice extra touch. I love how she repeats the following lines over enchanting synths, making it a wonderfully hazy fade-out:

I feel like, feel like you been watching me
I feel like, feel like you been stalking me
I feel like, feel like you been watching me
I feel like, feel like you been stalking me
I feel like, feel like you been watching me
I feel like, feel like you been stalking me
I feel like, feel like you been watching me
I feel like, feel like you been stalking me
Like you got a bounty, bounty out on me
Like you got a bounty, bounty out on me
Got a bounty, bounty out on me
Like you got a bounty, bounty out on me

In 2016 she released her acclaimed debut EP, Princess, and it seems like 2017 is shaping up to totally be her year. We can’t wait to see what’s in store for the Atlanta-based singer.
