'British singer/songwriter Abi Farrell debuted on Big AC Records in the winter lockdown of 2020 with “I Will See You Through”, the track that was quickly embraced by the underground soul scene and features here on the flip side of "Empowered" which is due for release in February.
‘Empowered’ is a gutsy, hard-hitting slice of soulful pop, celebrating independence, ambition and self-belief. The song bursts into life with its statement horn line, underpinned by a disco groove and funky textures of clav and wah.
Lyrically, 'Empowered' focuses on the phenomenon of emotional gaslighting in modern relationships and the ultimate realisation that one should never need permission to be authentically themselves: “I knew who I was before you came on the scene…”
'I Will See You Through' is a dreamy, Supremes-esque dancer of a track, co-written with Nick Corbin (New Street Adventure, Laville, Lack of Afro) and produced by Mitch Ayling (The Milk), the song wraps a reassuring arm around the listener, highlighting the importance of lending an ear to a close friend in need; a more than appropriate sentiment for today.
Both singles have earned rave reviews and worldwide radio exposure, including plays from the likes of Craig Charles (BBC 6 Music), Robert Elms (BBC Radio London), and Kurtis Powers (The Face Radio, NYC).
We are delighted to release this double sided single on a beautiful picture sleeve 7” vinyl.'
