Newcomer Abby Shreve’s new rock single “Misery” encapsulates the feeling of drowning beneath one’s mental struggles and the desperate reach for a hand in the dark. As Shreve’s pitch-perfect voice weaves a heartbreaking story, the instrumental accompaniment of searing guitar and a pounding drum beat that build to an electrifying final verse. The sentiments Shreve shares are ones that many can relate to (“Shaken hands and shaken hopes/I am trying to hold you close/Yet I am forgotten again/Why am I here, why do I breathe/Why I am tired, why I can’t sleep?”) and the grungy production harkens back to the early days of female rock vocalists breaking the scene in the 1970s and 1980s. Listeners are wrapped in “Misery” from start to finish thanks to Shreve’s hypnotizing tone and the emotion that cuts through every riff.
