Today, Montreal-based singer and songwriter Annabel Gutherz returns with the release of her new single, “Retrograde.” The Honey Pop exclusively premiered the new track and called it “out-of-this-world.”
“Retrograde” arrives on the heels of Annabel’s debut album, Loose Ends, which was released in late 2021. In contrast to the softer ballads that featured prominently on the album, Annabel’s newest single taps into a more maximalist pop-rock sound. Filled with driving drums, anthemic production and deliciously infectious pop hooks, “Retrograde” represents the beginning of a fresh chapter for this rising artist.
Expanding on what inspired the track, she says: “I noticed a shared sentiment amongst my friends, family, and me in the wake of the pandemic — a feeling of stagnation in our respective ambitions and pursuits, or worse, a sense of retrogression. Upon having an insightful conversation with my mom, who seems to have a blueprint of life’s greatest lessons, I came to the understanding that no one is ever stagnant. We are always learning, growing, and moving forward as a result… In other words, we are ‘never in retrograde.'”
