Boston-based Berklee scholar, multi-instrumentalist and singer-songwriter Abby Lokelani made her 2021 debut with the single ‘Morning Glory’; it speaks so personally you may just feel interrogated by the questioning lyrics.
With a semi-orchestral arrangement searing beneath Abby Lokelani’s vocals and finding synergy with the quiescent finger-picked guitar strings, there’s a sonically ethereal air to Morning Glory which amps up the evocative charge of the image-conjuring lyrics.
Any fans of Daughter, London Grammar and Deerhunter will want to take the time to delve into this promising exhibition of multifaceted talent which we hope to hear much more of in 2021 and beyond.
Morning Glory is available to stream on all major platforms via this link.
