Alt/pop Sensation Abby Sage Unveils Enchanting New Single “Milk” + Playing Austin City Limits This Weekend
October 27, 2023 BY Bailey Vigliaturo
Alt-pop artist on the rise Abby Sage is back with a hypnotic new single, “Milk.” This ethereal track serves as the first glimpse of the Toronto-born/LA-based songstress’ anticipated debut full-length album set to captivate listeners in Spring 2024.
“Milk” is a sonic journey that immerses audiences in a dreamy soundscape, adorned with delicate guitar melodies and Abby’s enchanting, layered vocals, subtly interwoven with harmonies that transport audiences to an otherworldly realm. Produced by MyRiot (Halsey, London Grammar, AURORA), also known as Roy Kerr and Tim Bran, the collaborators have created a musical experience that transcends genres and invites listeners to embrace nostalgia.
When asked about the inspiration behind the song, Abby shared, “‘Milk’ is reminiscent of childhood. So much so it’s a plea to someone to return to that state with you where everything is dirty, unkempt, and undefined. It’s also mildly based off of a documentary that I watched called ‘Boys Alone’ and ‘Girls Alone.’ In this doc they leave a group of children alone in a house for a week to see how they cope. It gets messy, alliances are formed, and the house is destroyed. Milk is like a land run by children where they’re authentically disgusting.”
The “Milk” music video is a mesmerizing visual masterpiece that delves deep into the intricate dynamics of the mother-daughter relationship. Through hauntingly captivating imagery and poetic symbolism, Abby artfully portrays the profound connection and ever-evolving nature of that bond.
Abby explains, “I really wanted to capture the relationship between my mother and I in this video. I lean on her, her on me. I learn from her, her from me. There are shots of us spinning around, each taking a turn grasping onto one another. I feel like that alone gets across exactly what I want… conveying that dependency and growth, especially how it shifts and changes over time.”
Abby Sage has been making waves in the alt/pop music scene with her distinctive sound and evocative storytelling. Her previous releases, the Fears Of Yours & Mine EP in 2021 and The Florist EP in 2022, have garnered praise from tastemakers and a dedicated fan base eagerly awaiting her debut full-length album.
Following the release of “Milk,” Abby Sage will grace the stage at premiere music festival Austin City Limits on October 7th. From there she will immediately hop on the road to join Gus Dapperton’s tour as a supporting act, treating audiences on select dates to her unique and enchanting live show.
Stay tuned for more updates, music, and announcements from Abby Sage as she prepares for the release of her album in Spring 2024 via Nettwerk. For now, immerse yourself in the magic of “Milk” and experience the sonic world she has created.
