A Bit Like Love - Abi Wade Single Release
A Bit Like Love is the album ‘Beautifully Astray’s opening track, combining melancholy vocals with expansive instumentation and a menacing, military-style beat.
The video is inspired by a love of Degas' studies of the body his line drawings and sculptures specifically.
The imagery is a sequence of moving portraiture filmed using an iPhone. This meant I could get intimate moments that I otherwise could not have achieved. Each shot is intentionally just a bit of the body and never quite reveals the face/body fully, which I think reflects the tone of the song; the space between knowing and not knowing a loved one."
'a fascinating gateway into her world, an endearingly odd and hopelessly bewitching piece of music' Clash Magazine
'Haunting brass and a blissful wind section filters through sweeping strings to form an orchestral arrangement that perfectly complements Wade’s heartfelt lyrics on relationships and human nature.' WithGuitars.com
'Abi’s music is a wonderful continuity of sound, mixed with haunting but demure beckoning of solitary serenades. It’s a delight' Comeherefloyd
