That's The One: acab brik | London
Less than a month since releasing their first single of 2021, acab brik follows up with remakes (feat. chevy blazer), the second half of double A-side a million awful.
Out now via Beth Shalom Records, the new release takes an upbeat, electronic approach to pop, with hints of lofi, emo rap at its core. Produced by no gods (Em Foster of Nervus/Milk Teeth), the solo project of itoldyouiwouldeatyou’s Joey Ashworth is a diversion from the pair’s eclectic guitar-band roots, stemming from a pre-COVID period spent touring together.
“When the first lockdown happened I hit up Joey and asked if they wanted to hear some stuff I had been making because I was playing around with what I could make remotely and in a somewhat confined space,” explains no gods. “We’d been on a tour together and they kept ad-libbing over the Nervus samples during soundcheck. It was really cool to make music that is somewhat outside of my technical comfort zone in terms of production, re-working a Nervus tune and building something entirely from scratch. I love how it was so naturally collaborative and democratic.”
a million awful follows up acab brik’s debut winter singles released in May of last year, and offers another glimpse at a songwriter keen to expand, experiment, and collaborate.
