LISTEN: Annabel Allum - ‘When The Wind Stopped’

Guildford's Annabel Allum recently shared When The Wind Stopped, the latest slice of punk-pop (if that's still a thing?) taken from her upcoming six track EP due for release in Autumn. I'm enjoying the subtle (but still very much present) fury that presents itself in the track, bubbling away at the surface. I'm not sure I'm digging this one quite as much as previous track You Got It Good, but that's more a compliment of the previous single than anything as that one was very, very good. The EP is going to be something special, I'm sure!

Talking about the new track, Annabel explained that "when I was a kid I had such big expectations of how life was gonna be. I think most people do. But somehow we lose track of our dreams and what we really want from life. It's so easy to shut yourself in a societal box and put your dreams to bed. I say fuck that. If you want something, go fucking get it. Less moaning, more chasing." (... mic drop.)

After a run of festival slots in the next couple of months and to celebrate the release of the EP, Annabel heads to the capital to headline The Waiting Room on 11th September, before playing at and running her own all-day festival at The Boileroom in Guildford on 22nd September and headlining Moles in Bath of 26th.
