Electronica/Grunge Pop artist, Abbe May, is one of Australia’s most respected songwriters and performers, having released three albums and two EPs in the last five years to massive critical acclaim. Her last two albums have been nominated for The Australian Music Prize and The J Award and in 2013 May was nominated for ARIA Best Female Artist.

May chucks a musical U-turn, indulging in a joy of sex and synths.It’s dirty, flirty and dark. 4/5 STARS WHO magazine
