That Shame

by Abbie Barrett

Released 2016
Released 2016
Anthemic, hook-laden pop rock that's a little angry, sometimes depressing, but always fun to sing along to.
NOTES
August 01, 2016 - Improper Bostonian
That Shame showcases her in full rock mode, sometimes evoking the tone and phrasing of the Pretenders’ Chrissie Hynde...[Her] craftsmanship extends from the gorgeous vocals of “As I Wanted You” and the soaring crescendos of “Falling” to the catchy ’80s-flavored punch of “Take It in Stride.”

August 26, 2014 - The Big Takeover
Such boldface names as Neko Case, Lana Del Rey, Cat Power, and Fiona Apple have been tossed about to describe the sound of Boston’s Abbie Barrett & The Last Date, but the massed vocal harmonies in this song off their forthcoming album, The Triples, reminds us of David Crosby’s brilliant but now largely forgotten 1971 solo LP If I Could Only Remember My Name — jazzed with the proggy propulsive drive of Annie Haslam andRenaissance.

Magnet Magazine
“‘Here To Stay,’ the opener on the new LP, is a pop-driven story of a woman struggling in a world where success depends on standards other than her own. The track bursts with an energy of hopefulness and despair, matching the feelings of the protagonist all along the way.”—Magnet Magazine
