Annabel Allum releases 90s tinged single You Got It Good via Killing Moon.
From playing local pubs in Guildford 6 nights a week, to acclaimed performances around the world, it’d be tempting to call Annabel Allum’s rise a whirlwind. However to do so would belie the steady growth and legwork put in by one of the UK’s most exciting

Long marked out as one to watch, the swell of praise for Annabel Allum from all corners is resounding. Long-time championed by BBC Radio 1, she’s made the daytime playlist, had a live session at the iconic Maida Vale studios as well as performing on their SXSW stage, a festival which she’s now taken by storm twice.

Beyond music Annabel keeps a well maintained, genuine aesthetic – this has lead to deals with indie clothing companies Bastien Classics and Cheap Monday. She has
also had acoustic tracks included in feature film Spaceship (BFI, BBC).
You Got It Good is the first single taken from a new 6-track EP, set for an autumn release.
Recorded with Adrian Hall (Goldfrapp, Anna Calvi, Du Blonde) it promises to be the most comprehensive example of her sound and style to date. In support of the release Annabel will be taking in various festivals as well as her own headline
