When someone discovers I am in a band they often ask ‘what do you sound like?’, ‘who do you sound like?’, ‘what type of music do you play?’, and although I should now be full of good comparisons and made up music genres I still struggle to avoid the pretentious “we don’t really sound like anyone else”. I have always found it difficult to place a name to the sound we create, but I wouldn’t say it has been something we have purposefully avoided.
Perhaps it is because we see Abe as more of a ‘thing we do as three individuals together’? Maybe Abe is the people we are collectively? Abe has taken the form of audio and music, and this I believe will always be its rawest form, however I am interested in how Abe might exist in other forms aesthetically.
I see Abe as a shared pool filled with our thoughts, inspirations, ambitions, ideas, emotions etc. From this pool I want to channel and guide Abe into new formats and concepts aside from Music, this new media will not be inspired by our already existing songs as such, but more the same substance that created ‘our sound’ in the first place.
We plan to explore Abe in new ways to show aesthetically what it is we are. We don’t know exactly what we will produce physically, but we know we are not on about CD covers, music videos or flyers. Abe is a filtered feeling between three individuals and we want to explain it.
