CRITIC REVIEWS

Resident Advisor

As sharpened as Abra's attack is on Princess, her music remains defiantly DIY. There's a hazy atmosphere, like weed mixed with perfume.

PRINCESS is slinky, percussive music that sounds like it was recorded in a gas station bathroom.

Behind the nostalgic tropes, there is a confident and self-possessed artist waiting to get out. But it’s a little hard to hear in the cramped space of a bedroom closet.
