After experimenting for a solid year with a mellotron and drum machine, ‘T.R.O.U.B.L.E’ was combined with a throbbing electro pulse, reverb-drenched vocals, and haunting background falsetto. The result is a lurching, Frankenstein-monster-esque beat layered with the slinky and sex-sodden drip feed of Abbe May’s voice; an example of the uncompromising doom pop that only Abbe May does so well.
‘T.R.O.U.B.L.E’ builds further upon the abrupt change in gears seen in previous single ‘Karmageddon’. With Abbe May swapping strings for synths, all while maintaining her trademark sexual swagger: retaining the hallmarks of her past successes, but while pushing the boundaries of her musicality. All (and more) will be revealed in her upcoming album Kiss My Apocalypse, due for release in May 2013.
Taking the easy road has never been a part of what Abbe May ‘does’.
