Guildford songwriter Annabel Allum has just shared her boisterous new single RASCAL, her second offering of the year following acclaimed January release Beat The Birds and critically successful 2017 EP All That For What. Loaded with pulsating hooks and the enigmatic singer-songwriter’s tenacious vocals, Allum oozes charisma and once more showcases her ability to marry folk-style storytelling with snarling fuzzy indie. Stream it below!

Speaking about the song Annabel said,
RASCAL pinpoints a phase in time when it felt like no matter what I was doing, it wouldn’t be right. Trying to look after myself, the people close to me, the people around me, and never finding a balance in any of it. I would either give too much or nothing at all. I still do that. It’s quite a sad song. Self-scrutiny, really. I guess I’m just still learning that it’s okay to not be able to please everything all the time.
Backed across tastemaker platforms as one of the most vitally sarcastic voices in the indie scene, praise has come from key press voices in FADER, DIY and The Line of Best Fit as well as on the airwaves in the form of Huw Stephens at BBC Radio 1 (Introducing Track of the Week) alongside 6 Music and Radio X.
