Abra: Darkwave Duchess
Last year’s Rose was a triumphant debut full-length, blending Abra’s interest in dark, lo-fi 80s pop with a hearty slice of lovers rock (we hear you, Sade) and syrupy R&B to emerge with something surprising and original.
FACT TV had the opportunity to spend three days filming with Abra on a recent visit to London, which has a very special place in her heart. The Atlanta-based artist actually spent some of her formative years living in Tooting Broadway, where she went to primary school.
We also followed the self-styled Darkwave Duchess to a Viper Magazine photo shoot, took a boat trip with her down the Thames (as you do), and caught her live performance at Village Underground with Father and Keith Charles SpaceBar.
If you missed that show, don’t worry – Abra will be embarking on a European tour this year, and you can check the dates below.
