A new project from Aaron Fletcher & Tim Parkin, card carrying members of the musical kaleidoscope that is The Bees, they bowled Heavenly over with their recent white-label seven, ‘Love Said (Let’s Go)’, a track Sounds Of The Universe record shop described as a ‘killer infectious soul pop tune’.
The seven sold out in 48 hours off the back of a building buzz and Heavenly quickly signed the band – “We only popped in for a 45 and ended up signing the group,” said Jeff from the label.
Aaron from the band added – “ We’ve been big fans of Heavenly ever since hearing Flowered Up’s “Weekender” as young teenagers…a truly cool label, proper music people. When we were looking for a home for the new project and heard that Jeff was a fan it was a no-brainer , the vibe was totally right.”

“a strong talent for songwriting” – The Independent
“an impish return riddled with superb wit, driven by pop ambition” Clash “relatable slacker rock that’s full of charm” – The Line of Best Fit
“Allum is as sure a thing as you can count on in this age of uncertainty” – Tiny Mix Tapes
Loaded with pulsating hooks and enigmatic tenacious vocals, Annabel Allum oozes charisma and showcases an inept ability to marry folk-style storytelling with snarling fuzzy indie. The Guildford-based singer-songwriter has been backed across tastemaker platforms as one of the most vitally sarcastic voices in the indie scene, with praise coming from key press voices in FADER, DIY and The Line of Best Fit as well as on the airwaves. ‘Beat the Birds’, taken from 2018’s ‘Sorry I’m Not Perceptible’ EP, found its place on the Radio 1 BBC Introducing Playlist, Huw Stephens chose it as his Introducing Track of the Week, and earned her a spot at BBC Music’s The Biggest Weekend in Swansea.
Annabel has performed a number of prestigious slots in the last twelve months, most notably supporting the iconic Beth Ditto across her UK/EU tour at the back end of 2017, as well as sharing the stage with Nadine Shah, Blaenavon and more. Sets at The Great Escape, Live at Leeds and SXSW last year brought her to wider international attention, whilst a fiery performance at her biggest headline show to date at London’s Camden Assembly in February signalled a real statement of intent. With performances lined up at Boardmasters, Siren Festival, Neverworld and Reading Festival this summer, and her first UK headline toured locked in for the Autumn, the future looks extremely bright for Allum.
