Good Day Noir Family,
our “E.A.Poets Approved/Bands We Like” section is dedicated to Abductees. I discovered this Band while shuffling songs on Spotify and liked their direct sound.
The sound of the Abductees immediately intrigued me as it reminded me of the legendary 90s. A pure and sincere rock with no strings attached.
The thing I liked the most is that this music is real with no plasticized beats and electronic sounds, just guitar, bass, and drums…this is the real deal.
The compositional method is simple but never banal and obvious and above all this music transfers incredible vital energy and manages to bring out your wild rock spirit.
The sound is great and the production is solid. I especially liked the mix that leaves the right space for each sound element and the song breathes well.
A nice discovery that I recommend to everyone.
Paris With A Broken Heart is Abductees’ Single Out Now!
Real and Energetic!
After the breakup of the world’s first business-metal band, Hostile Takeover, singer Ando decamped to Los Angeles and formed abductees as a rockabilly group in 2017.
A salubrious set of members – the drummer Sandwich, Dead Hands Eddy, Jimmy the Sleaze, Mrs Lady – came and left. The music got more and more messed up but remained informed by the seedy side of its surroundings, crafting tales of serial killers (Ted Bundy), Blade Runner Replicants (I Long For The Warmth of a Human Heart) and posing important questions (Who’s Gonna Be Your Axl Rose?). abductees now craft a kind of neo-grunge Seapunk informed by Art Brut, The Icarus Line, The Hives, Bo Diddley and The Human League
