Angel Abaya’s upcoming record The Bubble is about different orbs we place ourselves in: groups, cities, relationships, our relationship to self, our relationship to the world. It can be isolating, it can be fulfilling, or somewhere in between. Sometimes you wish to pop it. Sometimes you wish to float within it. You can hear these shifts within the playful use of genre, some moments being light and translucent, others being dark and distorted, but it is all held in a vessel that is honest, raw, heartfelt, and at times fearful. Angel Abaya is a Filipino-American singer, songwriter, and musician based in Los Angeles. She is set to release her debut album The Bubble on May 5 via Earth Libraries. Angel spent much of the last 7 years growing up in the music scene of Boise, Idaho, as well as playing supporting roles in Boise’s culture and arts community working for local organizations such as Treefort Music Fest, LED, and Boise Rock School.
