Singer/songwriter Abigail Ory releases her debut EP “Don’t Mind Me” today, October 7th — listen to the EP on Spotify HERE. A genre deviant, Ory set out to create her truest interpretation of what was going on inside of her head, and in doing so, made something unlike anything she’d ever heard before. Personally described as “weird pop”, Ory found inspiration from a number of artists for the five-track EP, including Marina and the Diamonds and Tash Sultana, and the Violent Femmes. Unlike many of her peers, Ory cites the differences between her songs as the center of her EP. The singer/songwriter collaborated on many tracks of the EP with mentor and esteemed songwriter, Donna Lewis (“I Love You Always Forever”), including lead single “Quiet Company.” The new single is inspired by Ory’s inner struggle to find identity; a struggle for her that ebbs and flows. While each song has its own distinct sound and topic, they all push confines and defy the classic pop sound.
Watch the official video for “Waves”, the third track on the EP.
On the inspiration behind “Don’t Mind Me”, Ory shared “To me, this EP represents a series of ideas that I’ve been mulling over for as long as I can remember. When I was unsure of what I wanted to express and how I wanted to express it, I kept coming back to the general absurdity of life. I’ve always considered myself to be both a strange and social person, and one of my favorite things about music is the ability to use melody and poetry to offset more serious tones. I hope people can relate to my songs for their emotion, their humor, and perhaps, their absurdity.”
