After dropping her alluring track “U Go I Go” a couple of weeks back, Abra from Awful Records releases her very first EP titled, BLQ Velvet. BLQ Velvet consists of 6 tracks that are versatile in sound and concept but cohesive as an entire project. This EP not only showcases her vocal and production skills, but also serves as a secret window to the inside of her mind for the past year. “I was really down and it was getting out of control. I knew if I could find something to aim for, I could pull myself out of the valley.” The 90’s like production infused with simplistic electronic sound reflects a combination of elements that Abra gets her inspirations from.
BLQ Velvet was stemmed from a dark time in Abra’s life where she went through various struggles but managed to make it through. This EP is like a breakthrough from the rough times she encountered prior to its release. “I’ve always been a lover of fantasy and a bit of an escapist. I love when I listen to music that visions and teleports me. Its like building a new world while consuming someone with sounds. I want to be able to take someone away from this place to somewhere trippy for a little bit of time.” BLQ Velvet is very relatable and has a array of sounds and melodies that will capture any music lovers attention. Abra is planing on releasing a full length album later on in the year.
