GABI (aka Gabrielle Herbst) is coming to LPR on Wednesday, April 22 for a record release show, and, while her new album Sympathy isn’t due out until April 7, you can stream the whole thing right now. Yesterday The FADER debuted the record along with a interview with GABI, in which she offered some insight into what inspired it:
“Are there any specific themes explored on the album? Sympathy is both an exploration in cultivating my own musical language and an attempt to touch on universal feelings. I chose Sympathy as the album title because I think it’s a really beautiful concept: stepping outside of oneself to feel another’s pain. My songs are trying to escape the confines of my own head and connect with others. Experimentation with text and the voice is something that runs deep throughout the album. I think returning to the raw simplicity of voice and breath is important right now in our culture.”
Check out the entire interview and give Sympathy a listen over at The FADER.
GABI plays LPR on 4/22 with Solvey and Vorhees.
