Annabel Allum – Ordinary Life

Grunge inspired icon Annabel Allum returns with her latest lockdown inspired single, ‘Ordinary Life’. Co-written with the former frontman of Reuben and solo artist Jamie Lenman and producer Ben Hillier (Nadine Shah, Depeche Mode, Blur, Doves), the release comes in a time of need for the globe. Taken from Annabel’s ‘hear me out’ B sides EP, which is 13-track release certainly bringing hope to the world, ‘Ordinary Life’ is as real as it gets.

“This song is a product of sitting with myself for too long. Yes, it exhausts me to do nothing. For a moment in time, I have had to live an organized, disciplined life. I am a doll in a doll’s house, waiting to be let free, desiring the less ordinary, and the life I could once call mine.” says Annabel Allum.

“My music publisher put me in touch with Annabel as someone that would be good to write with, and it turned out she lives right around the corner from me. She knows all the same venues and people, so it was great to have that connection. She’s one of those artists that can sing anything and make it sound good, so we couldn’t really go wrong, and producer Ben was an incredibly enthusiastic, enabling presence – not to mention a mean drummer! ‘Ordinary Life’ sounds like a fun afternoon to me, which it was.” says Jamie Lenman.

Ordinary Life captures the frustration we’ll all feeling whilst in isolation and how being confined to the same 4 walls is certainly taking its toll on us now. “Ordinary Life” is armed with a desirable drum pattern that jives into tomorrow with it’s addictive style, and a distinctive vocal from Annabel.
