Driven to ditching her acoustic guitar by an endless series of broken strings, Abbie Morin switched from her folk-rock persona to the Fender Jazzmaster sound of new project Hammydown. It’s the quirky garage-pop that could get filed alongside the B-52s or They Might Be Giants . The new EP – Pizzaface – captures the sound of the millennial slacker – those who button up and drag their way through the working week whilst trying to pursue creative passions, but still just feel like losers who are stuck in a series of service industry jobs and a rotating roster of bosses who helpfully tell you “it doesn’t cost anything extra to give service with a smile”. Happy Monday!
