Once upon a time, pop stars tore up pictures of the pope and cursed out the Queen on television. Most days, that era seems long dead. We live in a landscape where being on-brand trumps truth. The end result is that mundanity wins. Annabel Jones is looking for the antidote.
This forthcoming EP, ‘Libelle’, marks Annabel’s debut for Crooked Paintings/Atlantic Records. History’s best pop songs are written with an honesty that allows listeners to recognize themselves in the music. These reflect a similarly indelible nature: true stories written from experience that embed themselves in mind and marrow.
