Tancred is thrilled to be releasing her new self-titled album today, October 15th, on Topshelf Records. Praised for its energetic “power pop” by MTV Hive, Tancred was self-recorded by Mainer and current Minneapolis resident Jess Abbott. The album is the second full-length solo release for Abbott, who alternately spends her time as one third of the critically acclaimed trio Now, Now.

The follow up on 2011’s Capes, the songs on Tancred leap from the speakers with an intense frenetic jolt, unwinding like a long overdue conversation. Mixing sweetly sung dissonance and angular guitar tones, Abbott draws the listener in with deeply personal lyrics set to songs reminiscent of early Death Cab For Cutie and Tegan and Sara circa If It Was You.
