Rock music has many powers, chief among them the ability to question and/or mock the establishment and the wealthy 1%. Rising Guildford-based rocker Annabel Allum is the latest in a long lineage to draw knives in this respect with a tasty tune. Eat the rich, as they say.
On single “Rich Backgrounds,” Allum opens with world-weary strums and the over-it call of, “rich backgrounds, your rich fucking backgrounds.” From there the track kicks up into a full blown alt-rock banger as the talented songwriter continues to outline the more relatable, humanizing elements that make her different and that money can’t buy.
Stream Annabel Allum’s “Rich Backgrounds” below and catch her down at SXSW should you be Austin bound this year.
