Rising star Abby Roberts has released her highly anticipated EP obscura (listen here), following her impressive headline performance at Colours Hoxton on Wednesday. The new EP showcases Abby’s musical development since her last body of work, 2022’s EP Ashes, and positions her as one of the most exciting emerging artists in indie pop right now. obscura features previously released tracks ‘Imposter Syndrome’ (written with Halsey), moody ‘volatile’, and dreamy indie track ‘lose myself in you’ (ft. re6ce) alongside stunning new songs ‘idea of you’ and ‘protocol’.

Commenting on the new EP, Abby says: “I’ve been working on ‘obscura’ over the past four years, it’s a reflection of my coming of age and events that shaped me into the person I am today, it has evolved and changed just as much as I have over the past few years, and I couldn’t be more proud of a project.”

Following her impressive headline show at Colours Hoxton this week, Abby will be playing at All Things Go Festival in September, marking her first ever US festival with more live dates to come soon. Previously, Abby has supported the likes of Halsey, beabadoobe, Pale Waves, The Marias, Gus Dapperton, as well as smashing performances at Romania’s Summer In The City 2023, Brighton’s Great Escape Festival and Reading & Leeds Festival.

About Abby Roberts

Hailing from Leeds, the 22-year-old make-up artist turned pop rock musician began her career at the micro age of 11, turning out experimental artwork on her face for YouTube, Instagram and later TikTok, where she grew a dedicated following of over 16 million. Currently, on Instagram she’s sitting pretty on 2 million followers, with 819k YouTube subscribers, and 137k Spotify monthly listeners. It wasn’t until 2020, as Roberts was reaching creative burn out, that she returned to her dream of creating music. With help from producers Tim Woodcock and Noah Terefe, Abby built songwriting confidence and found her sound, blending influences of Lana Del Rey, Mazzy Star, Nirvana, Radiohead, and Arctic Monkeys. Her laid-back melancholic debut EP Ashes gained approval from Halsey, who later asked Abby to support them on tour. Since then, her career has rocketed.
