“Raucous, tongue-in-cheek… a rock smash filled with grit” The FADER “Courtney Barnett on a Kill Bill style vengeance mission” DIY
“Dripping with sarcasm and bite” The Line of Best Fit
“Allum is as sure a thing as you can count on in this age of uncertainty” Tiny Mix Tapes
Loaded with pulsating hooks and enigmatic tenacious vocals, Annabel Allum oozes charisma and showcases an inept ability to marry folk-style storytelling with snarling fuzzy indie. The Guildford-based singer-songwriter has been backed across tastemaker platforms as one of the most vitally sarcastic voices in the indie scene, praise has come from key press voices in FADER, DIY and The Line of Best Fit as well as on the airwaves in the form of Huw Stephens at BBC Radio 1 (Introducing Track of the Week) alongside 6 Music and Radio X.
Building on this buzz, Annabel has performed a number of prestigious slots in the last twelve months, culminating in supporting the iconic Beth Ditto across her UK/EU tour at the back end of 2018, as well as sharing the stage with Nadine Shah, Blaenavon and more. Sets at The Great Escape, Live at Leeds and SXSW last year brought her to wider international attention, whilst a fiery performance at her biggest headline show to date at London’s Camden Assembly in February signalled a real statement of intent.
