ABQ: Takes So Long

Having already caught the attention of La Roux and Joe Cleere, it’s safe to say that indie pop four piece ABQ are no strangers to recognition.

Indie pop with a gutsy edge, ABQ are now ready to share their new single, Takes So Long, The track is about letting go and accepting change, sentiments encouraged by a gutsy drum beat and anthemic melody.

'So this is where you go when you need to get away' sings lead vocalist, Paul Shevlin, with an unusual vulnerability given the primary vibe of the track. And yet, it doesn’t seem out of place in a single as multi-faceted as this.

Shevlin, previous winner for the BPI / BRIT Awards sponsored ‘Next Brit Thing’, provides an incredible front for this impassioned band, with the clarity and power of his vocals suiting the instrumentation to a tee.

ABQ will be performing at Sound City in Liverpool on May 5th, Hit The North in Newcastle on the 6th, and the Great Escape in Brighton on the 17th and 18th. Keep an eye out, definitely one to watch.
