ABBIE FROM MARS ‘My Second Debut Album’

Jun 10, 2022 | Experimental, Reviews

Electroshock or electro chic?

Abbie From Mars could be the most rhythmically obsessed alien to ever take up residence in New York, and this sophomore debut delivers an electro storm of improvisational pop, and eclectic idiosyncrasies.

Throughout we’re an onlooker to more earthbound concerns, delivered as looped, memorable refrains, such as the touching “what good is the weekend if I can’t see you ‘til Monday.” Later, we stop off for The Tap Dance Interlude, highlighting another of Abbie From Mars’ many talents, before segueing into the sumptuous Travel set to syncopated tempos and a repeated conundrum, “wouldn’t know the Artic from the Sahara with you. You got me burning, you got me shivering too.” Despite the celestial trappings, we’re made certain of the human nature of these songs.

Ladies and gentleman please make your way to the launch pad. No matter if this is electroshock or electro chic, My Second Debut Album, is totally simpatico with New York, and indeed, Mars!
