Annabel Allum – When The Wind Stopped

Guilford singer-songwriterΒ Annabel AllumΒ is making a name for herself with her relatable brand of slacker rock. She came to my radar last year, with her single Beat The Birds, which was also remixed by Rat Boy. It eventually ended up on her second EP Sorry I’m Not Perceptible.

She just returned with When The Wind Stopped, the second single (and title track) to be taken from her forthcoming third EP, due for release this autumn. A song with propulsive basslines, anthemic rhythms and the singer’s signature, matter-of-fact tone, it’s a passionate ode to not giving up on your childhood dreams as we mature.

Allum says of the inspiration behind it: “When I was a kid I had such big expectations of how life was gonna be. I think most people do, but somehow we lose track of our dreams and what we really want from life. It’s so easy to shut yourself in a societal box and put your dreams to bed. I say fuck that. If you want something, go fucking get it. Less moaning, more chasing.”
