The origins of Abjects' sound cannot be pinned down to one singular place. The three members hail from across the globe and bring with them specific sonic influences: Singer-guitarist Noemi is from Spain, bassist Yuki is from Japan, and drummer Alice is from Italy. Though they come from all over the map, they've carved out a unique niche for themselves with their music.
Ahead of the release of the group's debut record, they share their latest single and video "The Storm," a song about frustration and longing, exclusively via NYLON.
As Noemi explained to NYLON, the track is "about the tension and internal battle a person goes through when they're feeling really angry but doesn't want to let it show." The video, though, takes a lighter approach to the tumultuous emotions, arming Noemi's friend Lala "with water gun and skateboard," and follows her down the Barcelona streets "until she finally finds her nemesis and dares her to a satanic ping pong game."
