Abram Shook: “Can’t Get Away”

Before settling in Austin over a decade back, California’s Abram Shook studied jazz and in between surfing sessions he soaked up the rays of Brazilian and West African music. And while the “surfer” persona might fit Shook on first glance, his synth-heavy songwriting is so much more than the influences he draws from. Lighthearted instrumentation often contradicts Shook’s sarcastic-yet-personal lyrics and his fourth full-length kicks it up with a crust of dance-inducing tunes over a core of sinister themes.

You can expect more details about the upcoming album soon but for now let Abram shake up your work week with its foreboding lead single, “Can’t Get Away“!
