The new single from Toronto-based songwriter Abigail Lapell's upcoming album, Getaway, is up now on Wide Open Country! Lapell's album drops February 1st, 2019 on Coax Records.
Bobbie Sawyer writes that Lapell's "warm, crystalline voice shines" on her "ethereal" new track, premiering today on Wide Open Country. Lapell shared with Wide Open Country that "'Devil in the Deep' is kind of a rock anthem that's equal parts religious symbolism and nursery rhyme." We're just about to send out hard copies, so let me know if you want one!
Toronto vocalist, guitarist, and multi-instrumentalist Abigail Lapell is rewriting the narrative of her past in a new album that says farewell to transience, both emotional and physical. Recently engaged, and with her new album, Getaway, due out February 1, 2019 via Coax Records / Outside, Lapell in her latest work offers parting words to a time in her life she's leaving behind. Abigail Lapell is no stranger to constant traveling, but she's now making peace with putting down roots, both with her life in Toronto and within love. The eleven prairie noir tracks on Getaway represent a dynamic closing to this reflective journey.
Drowned in an ethereal beauty, Getaway features waves of pop persuasions overturned by avant-garde forays, while classic rock riffs and indie folk roots float to the breezy surface. Reminiscent of the introspective strength of Bridget St John, the vocal power of Natalie
Merchant, and the trance-like lulls of Sybille Baier, Lapell's newest record combines a mid-century tone with a modern edge.
