Annabelle Freedman wraps you in a delightful blanket of upcycled sounds. Based in Los Angeles, they breathe bewilderment into their generous collaborations bringing you undiluted sincerity. They are an interdependent artist, rather than an independent one. Through the use of undulating vocals captured on a Telefunken TF-29 Copperhead, expansive Ableton production, NS electric violin, and Fender's Tenor Tele, their collaboration with companies as well as their musical collaborators beckons listeners to celebrate the magnificent as well as the mundane.
Their release, "Blastin Pastem," with Zhao, broadcast on NPR as a top tune, premiered on KCRW's most popular show, Morning Becomes Eclectic, and was played by KCRW DJs Valida, Novena Carmel, Anne Litt, Raul Campos, and Aaron Byrd. It made the top 20 of 2020 list of several KCRW DJs. Annabelle also released the singles, "reCOLLECTION" along with a music video by Kellen Malloy, "Rainbow", "Green Tree Tops", "Slippin", and "Mirror's Eye" in 2020.
In 2021, they released “Hope” with Def Sound and Zhao which also premiered on KCRW’s MBE while Annabelle was working on their first full-length album with Rachel White. Their first production credits, "Flowers" and “A Poem Called Here” by Def Sound, also graced KCRW airways by way of several DJs.
