After appearing at WOMADelaide 2018 Abbey has steeped a fresh brew of elemental pop with her band Elle Shimada, Hannah Macklin, and Myka Wallace. Their debut EP, produced by Perrin Moss of Hiatus Kaiyote will be born this year. This two time South Australian Music award winner follows the transient nature of biology through to her sound and performance, challenging the role that humans play in the world and woman play in society.
As a multi-instrumentalist, Abbey has progressively mastered the fine art of looping, introducing eclectic rhythms and beats to her ever-expanding wilderness, creating melodies atop melodies and patterns within rhyme. Her style has morphed from acoustic vibrations to colourful percussive vocal loops, blending hip-hop and soul in an mysterious way. Drawing influence from all over the world, Abbey Howlett provokes memories of greats such as Bjork, Erykah Badu and Portishead.
Recent release 'Colour Me Gold' lays collaborations with Melbourne's Sabicu AKA Daniel Curtis, Myka Wallace, Producer Paul Bender and video creatives Liam Sommerville and Aaron Schuppan of Capital Waste Pictures.
