New Orleans-bred, Brooklyn based songbird & creative Abby Diamond, who made her Elite debut with the single “Yes My Heart Is Open, No You Can’t Come In,” blesses us with sultry vocals on her latest offering “Irrelevant.” The new single is inspired classic R&B, feminine power, and features deep rhythmic pockets and electronic elements. The single is produced by production duo Slenderbodies.
Speaking on the how the record was created Abby says:
“Max from slenderbodies slid into my Soundcloud DMs when I lived in New Orleans, back when we were both still putting sweet janky beats up on the internet. We just became friends from afar for years and would always send each other shit we were working on. By the time I moved to LA he had started to blow up, and we would just chill and write together a lot. One day he showed me ‘Irrelevant’… I have this thing that I only sing songs other people write if the words are so true for me that I feel like I could have written them. When I heard the song, I was kind of astonished. I felt everything. As for the music video, I guess it has two meanings. First of all, I made it with one of my best friends and her girlfriend, and we all had these memories of watching TV when we were younger and falling in love with the women on the screens. We wanted to bring these daydreams into form and let other people step into them, see the world through them… (Do you feel the numbing heat of the room around you? Do you see the walls shrink as they drip into new colors?) The second way to look at it is probably a bit more accurate than the first, but I’m not going to get into it.”
