Indie-pop songstress Abi Muir has been making waves recently with a stellar string of releases, impressing fans and critics alike while building a strong and loyal following. Now, the Cairns artist is releasing her latest single, the stellar 'Still the Same', a gorgeous throwback to 2000s indie-pop with its showstopping vocals and nostalgia drenched instrumentals.
Immediately hooking the listener with goosebump-inducing vocals reminiscent of Ariana Grande and Billie Eilish, Abi’s latest single leads the listener on a modern indie pop journey. Her latest, and arguably most intoxicating single to date, ‘Still The Same’ is a perfect example of her indie-pop vibe, taking listeners back to the Y2K era and telling a familiar story of a person seeing an old lover after a long passage of time.
Built on dramatic strings, a powerful drum line, and piano keys that perfectly support the emotive vocals, ‘Still The Same’ communicates the feeling one has when realising the passage of time and the effects of change. In true form, Abi's crystalline vocals shine above the driving rhythms as sings of the price you pay for love and time, while the arrangement perfectly underpins the song's theme.
Speaking openly about the new single, Abi explained, “‘Still The Same’ was inspired by a book I read where the character became immortal and lived many different lives but was still the same person on the inside. I wanted to tell this story in song and communicate the emotions and feeling of time passing, watching people you used to know grow and change, whilst you as the observer feel the same, standing still in time.”
Making strides as a Finalist in the Queensland Music Awards the young artist goes from strength to strength from winning the International Unsigned Only competition to directing music videos. We're incredibly excited to premiere this latest release and to see where Abi goes next as a potential indie-pop icon. 'Still The Same' release officially tomorrow - check it out and stay tuned for possible live shows as the scene starts thriving again!
