“Less is more” is a simple enough phrase to apply to music, but it can be a dangerous thing. When you strip away all the extra, you’re left with a few glaring elements, and if those elements aren’t strong, it becomes terribly clear. Abigail Wyles doesn’t have that problem. On “Mantra,” the London singer and her producing partner and instrumentalist Holly Simpson achieve a clean, minimal style driven by smart arrangement, excellent percussion, and fluent production that lets Abigail’s voice shine effortlessly.
Look out for a video and remixes soon, and stay tuned to hear more from Abigail Wyles.
