An enigmatic artist, Abbe May has been brewing her captivating live show and unique rock and roll over the past four years, which has seen her accumulate numerous accolades and a passionate fan-base along the way.
‘Mammalian Locomotion’ and ‘Design Desire’, the first two singles from Abbe’s third album, indicate a new direction; showcasing heavy, scaling riffs and seductively ethereal vocals. Both singles immediately attracted the attention of Australian and international critics, many citing Abbe as carving an important presence in the future of Rock ‘n’ Roll.
Growing up in a Western Australian country town, Abbe May is an intense and primal live performer, capable of ‘machine gunning’ an audience with her electric guitar and then stripping it back to a disarmingly intimate delivery.
Working through WA’s notorious talent pool to the top of the tree, Abbe impressed both local and national industry, before an explosion of recognition for her singles ‘Mammalian Locomotion’ and ‘Design Desire’ lead to the album becoming one of the most anticipated in the international blogosphere.
With Track of the Day on Spinner.com, a glowing review on PopMatters.com as well as love from Los Angeles’ tastemaker station KCRW, and at home from Triple J and community radio stations, Abbe has well and truly made
an international statement with a progression in both sound and attitude.
‘Design Desire’ showcases a slightly more exposed side of Abbe - simultaneously heavy and delicately beautiful.
“Abbe May is set to destroy the entire rock world. Her new solo album Design Desire is bursting with the most righteous and gnarly blues-laced guitar sound this side of the White Stripes and the Pack a.d., drifting majestically beneath honest, take-no-prisoners vocals dripping with tasteful effects. This record is destined to break 2011 wide open with truth-bombs. The proof is in the video for the record’s title track, with an rising scale guitar line, deliciously teased bridge and half-time break down, and reverb laden vocals.” - PopMatters.com
