Abby Huston - "Apartment"

Photo by Ryan Gary

Richmond, VA based producer/songwriter Abby Huston's music is described as indie, easy listening, soul, and R&B. Their most recent single, "Apartment," has echoes of all of those genres. It's a quiet, thoughtful track that still has the groove of soul or R&B. It's an almost painfully intimate song, the kind where you feel like you're listening in on someone's private thoughts. But, Huston has crafted a song that you'll feel yourself needing to listen to, and maybe even doing a slow little dance in your chair despite how chill it is.

In a press release, Abby Huston says of their new song:

"'Apartment’ is about depression and anxiety, self-doubt and acceptance through accountability. It’s about the stubborn resistances of our spirit and inner wisdom, and how that can settle into hopelessness, self-isolation, and negativity. It’s a reminder that we can accept the purpose and ability to transform into the people we want to be.
“The lyrics show the arrival of this enlightenment, because for me, amidst everything else in the world, realization can come in like waves, like leases, like semesters, like days and verses—it took time. In the case of “Apartment,” acceptance didn’t come until the final chorus."

You can listen to "Apartment" below. The song is currently available as a single via Egghunt Records with an album due out in the Fall. You can get the single over at Bandcamp. For more on Abby Huston, check out the artist's Facebook.
