Abby Sage announces debut album 'The Rot'

Following on from the glowing response to her much-loved singles 'Milk' and 'Hunger' last year, Abby Sage has now announced her plans for her eagerly-awaited debut album, arriving in the coming months.

The new full-length 'The Rot' is being previewed by the lead track 'Obstruction', which comes accompanied by a stunning new video, and is set to be released on the 1st March via Nettwerk.

Speaking about the new offering, she said, “In ‘Obstruction,’ I wanted to personify a pestering thought. I think it was an important song for me to release a memory I had been holding on to for a while. It’s a thought that doesn’t leave you no matter how hard you try. It shows up in your living room, in your day-to-day tasks. I wanted to use very literal and realized language to describe the process of getting rid of it, ‘cut it out with a knife’… That felt like such a beautiful visual to me, physically cutting out a memory with a sharp knife.”

While adding about the new visuals, “When I tried to picture what a video for ‘Obstruction’ would look like, I always imagined the setting of me having dinner with a personified version of the memory, the puppet, and going through those inner monologue motions. We dance, we fight, but ultimately I kill it off and mourn the memory but finally learn to let it go.”
