Originally from New Zealand but currently based on the east coast of the USA, Annabel cut her teeth in cult bands such as Christchurchʼs psychedelic surf outfit Hawaii Five-O, Space Dust and the Hiss Explosion, then went on to complete post-graduate studies in computer-based composition at university. After her studies, Annabel returned to what she loved best – making psychedelic pop music – and Bachelorette appeared on the scene in 2005. Her self-titled third album was released on May 16th 2011 through Souterrain Transmissions.

Her breathtaking live set developed around a ʻbandʼ of 3 old CRT monitors, which were borrowed from acquaintances or picked up from recycling stations and thrift stores in each town. On stage, the CRT ʻbandʼ simultaneously displayed waveform patterns and other synchronised visuals corresponding to separate recorded instruments, as Annabel sang and played along with them.

Mixed by Nicholas Vernhes at Rare Book Room (Animal Collective, Beach House) in Brooklyn, Bachelorette’s album is built on minimal synth grooves, strummed guitar, innocent whistles wondering through cold hallways, and occasional accompaniment on drums. But all are guided by Bacheloretteʼs ethereal lead vocal.

Bachelorette will be playing these UK dates:


23rd York, The Duchess w/ The Phoenix Foundation

24th Newcastle, The Cluny w/ The Phoenix Foundation

25th Edinburgh, Cabaret Voltaire w/ The Phoenix Foundation

26th Glasgow, Glasgow School of Art w/ The Phoenix Foundation


22nd London, CAMP Basement.
