Abra: The Darkwave Duchess Is Your New Favorite Singer
ABRA-cadabra. Â This could be an incantation used as a magic word, but only when it comes to the magic that Atlanta singer and songwriter ABRA is creating with her music. Born in New York, but raised in London, she moved to Atlanta/Georgia when she was eight years old and pretty much felt like a misfit. A feeling that is not really nice, but made her learn to play the guitar and to write songs. She learned how to escape into the world of music and work on her craft.
In 2014 ABRAÂ released an EP named “Blq Velvet” and quickly followed it with an album titled “Rose”, which made her the Internet star that she is today. Her mostly slow R&B sound is very unique and a little bit dark, but the beats still make you want to move and dance to it. “Princess”, a seven-song EP with a more defined sound, arrived in July 2016. Â The vibes she gives us with her music is lit. Be aware:Â The ‘darkwave duchess’, as she likes to call herself, will be your new favorite artist.
