TUNE Love Thy Neighbour - Abi Wade - Reasonable Doubt
Taken from her debut LP 'Beautifully Astray' out on 6th April.
Using cello, vocals, orchestral arrangements, choral ensembles, location samples, synths and piano Abi Wade explores human nature through real and abstracted personas on her debut album ‘Beautifully Astray’.
Reasonable Doubt is about exploring the insular side of human nature in relation to the ecological and political environment. Abi says “I imagine a twisted & broken playground scene with a self-involved cheerleader lording over her clique in the setting of an apocalyptic world. They just carry on regardless to the destruction around them, all except for a shunned onlooker looking at them in disbelief”
The song was built around the beginning cello riff and developed with the addition of field recordings taken from a children’s playground, sequenced drums, analog synths, driving piano chords and warped bv’s.
