Hawaii Five-O’s, Annabel, has been a solo artist for six years now and has recently released her third album.
The self-titled album was released on May 16 and from it, she is set to release the next single, Polarity Party.
Polarity Party is a short track combining pleasant electronic beats with beautiful vocals. The simplicity of the song is what sells it.
Bachelorette knows how to produce good, relaxing, psychedelic music which can be easily listened to and instantly enjoyed.
Why not take a look at the rather unusual video for Polarity Party?
Bachelorette is the solo project from Annabel Alpers who’s made a name for herself in bands such as the surf outfit Hawaii 0-Five.
Originating from New Zealand, Annabel now lives in the USA where she produces her psychedelic inspired pop music and she’s set to release her third full length CD on May 16th.
Ahead of the release date, I’ve been sent a track of hers to listen to, titled Blanket. Now I don’t typically listen to this sort of psychedelic music but I found something quite peaceful in it.
With smooth synths and gentle vocals, the song makes for good background music. There’s an alienation feel to it, especially with the ah ah’s in the breaks between verses which I think is what makes it feel spacy and relaxing.
I say it makes for good background music because nothing much happens in it. It’s relaxing and peaceful but pretty basic. It doesn’t jump out at you which is a good and bad thing at the same time.
Of course, this is only one song from the 12 track release and as far as sample tracks go, it’s good. The vocals are just right for such a docile song. The synths not overused or overpowering. The mix is perfect and it gets a thumbs up from me.
