Hysteria by Abby London: Review
Abby London’s track “Hysteria” is a thought-provoking experimental tune. Your ears will be graced by an eerie piano arrangement, and your spirit will be enchanted. The offbeat pace has occasional transitions from minor chords to major chords which gives it a bit of a scary and avant-garde feel. The vocalist possesses a silky tone that may also change pitch. In addition, there is a touch of light percussion included. After the first half of the song, the melody goes through a dramatic transformation, becoming a more chirpy tune. There is a greater emphasis on piano music in this section before returning to the main melody.
The vocals are incredibly pure, and the whole instrumental arrangement benefits from their ability to create a really calming tone. What I found most enjoyable were the piano parts where the notes changed scales, as well as the fillers that were interspersed throughout the song. The song as a whole is an example of the indie genre, but it also has elements of experimental music here and there. The song, as a whole, has an artistic perspective to it.
“Hysteria”, is a new track by pop singer Abby London, which was motivated by how predictable the news is. According to her, when we turn on the TV, we encounter anxiety, darkness, and similar patterns of dread that feel like reruns from a show. It can be quite overwhelming to understand the news, and I’m truly glad Abby said her piece through melody.
