Every note on the Princess EP is written, produced, and performed by ABRA – often in the solitude of her bedroom closet. As an introverted youth, she dug into the Internet to find community and inspiration. Then, as now, she found inspiration in unique juxtapositions, as seen in her early acoustic covers of Gucci Mane, Waka Flocka Flame, and 2 Chainz that she posted on YouTube. Those videos eventually led her to a new community: Awful Records. The Awful crew — a collective of friends, artists, and collaborators creating their own hypercolor, DIY version of Atlanta’s burgeoning weirdo-rap movement — embraced her fully. Even within the rap-oriented Awful crew she is an iconoclast: for her own productions, she avoids the conventional sounds of Atlanta trap in favor of drums and synthesizers reminiscent of 1980’s pop.
