Fred Abbott is a London (UK) based musician and… until now … best known as a guitarist and keyboardist in the recently dissolved Noah And The Whale.
A supremely talented multi-instrumentalist and composer, Abbott joined Noah And The Whale in 2009 and went on to huge success, especially notable for his major contribution to the 2011 Platinum-selling and highly acclaimed Last Night On Earth.
Fred has just unveiled his video for the song ‘Adrenaline Shot’ from debut solo album ‘Serious Poke’ which will be out later this July on British indie label Lojinx .
It was co-produced by Fred with Martin Hollis, whose diverse credits include Grinderman, The Rolling Stones and Take That.
The new video for ‘Adrenaline Shot’ features two of Fred’s former Noah And The Whale friends: Matt ‘Urby’ Owens and Michael Petulla.
We had a listen:
There’s some serious attitude in this rooftop rocker.
The guitar-work is authentically greasy / dirty.
The voice is hoarse, with a tang of rye malt and yeast. And it is the driver for this exciting song.
This is intelligent roots rock ‘n’ roll with dynamic shine and working-man thud.
So expect the body and fullness of a dust encrusted Chevrolet Sting with the smoothness and precision of a softail cruiser.
