I’ll keep an open mind on this one….. certainly quite chilled and pleasant.
Here’s the script:
Bachelorette, aka New Zealand’s Annabel Alpers, is set to tour across the UK and Europe this summer following the release of her self-titled third album on May 16th.
She cut her teeth in cult bands such as Christchurchʼs psychedelic surf outfit Hawaii Five-O, Space Dust and the Hiss Explosion and later studied computer-based composition at the Universities of Canterbury and Auckland in New Zealand which inspired her own breathtaking live set. Her live set-up is developed around a ʻbandʼ of 3 old CRT monitors which were borrowed from acquaintances or picked up from recycling stations and thrift stores.
Mixed by Nicholas Vernhes at Rare Book Room (Animal Collective, Beach House) in Brooklyn, ‘Bachelorette’ is built on minimal synth grooves, strummed guitar, innocent whistles wondering through cold hallways, and occasional accompaniment on drums. But all are guided by Bacheloretteʼs ethereal lead vocal.
Here’s what it sounds like:
