This week’s track of the week (TOTW) comes from Aby Coulibaly; 21 year old singer-songwriter from Dublin.
Emerging from the underground scene in Dublin, Abi and her friends started their own independent record label – Chamomile Records. You can tell there is a clear passion from artists to deliver their music to the world when they go out of their own way to make it happen.
Aby comments that the meaning behind this track is women who tear each other down instead of lifting each other up.
It is so refreshing to hear Aby’s accent coming through on the spoken word/rap section on this track, reminding me of Rejjie Snow, making both his and her sounds more unique. It is great to hear raw talent come from your home country, it makes liking the artist all that more sweet.
Aby really has so much potential as an artist which is really exciting to see as we move towards a lively gig scene in England and hopefully to come for Ireland.
