Two years after the release of their acclaimed debut "Family Life", Abbie Gale are back with their second album, symbolically titled "2". Guided by the charming, wide-ranging voice of Evira, the band appear more mature than ever, as they present their compositions in a solid and determined fashion. The album's excellent production values, combined with Abbie Gale's confident playing make "2" an exciting listening proposition. Starting with the introspective mood of the opening track "Life After Life", Abbie Gale guide us through a bright playful conversation in "Lovesong" (guest featuring Raining Pleasure's frontman Vassilikos), sparks of lyricism such as "Clown" and "Air" and an agonizing spoken-word manifesto in "Danko". The band's dedication to their creative vision, along with their refined sense of songwriting and their honest inspiration make for an aesthetically flawless result.
