LISTEN: Annabel Allum - 'Altar to Alter'

You may have seen this track on the blog playlist (check that out here - it's where I add all of my favourite new tracks each Friday). Altar to Alter is the latest track from Annabel Allum, the third single taken from upcoming EP Gravel Not The Grave, which is due for release on 13th September via Killing Moon. Having gained much press and radio support, Annabel continues to show how deserved this all is with this ace new track.

Talking about the song, she explains that "Altar to Alter is my protest song, and I'm super proud of how it turned out. It's all about saying what you mean to say and standing up for what you believe in. In my head there's an altar in everyone's mind where they go and choose what they wanna change, and how they're gonna change it. Lyrically the song has a lot of religious themes running through, because we are our own religion and our own God. We forget to respect ourselves and our own powerful abilities to change things."

I haven't seen Annabel live yet, but through her tracks I get the sense that she is both a talented and compelling live act with a string of festival performances, support slots and tours under her belt. She's heading out on a headline tour to coincide with the EP release this Autumn, taking in shows in London (11th Sep), Guildford (22nd) and Bath (26th). Check out the dates and grab tickets here.
