Bachelorette is the solo delivery vehicle for home recording tinkerer Annabel Alpers, with a little help from her friends Andrea Holmes (ex Fang) and local legend Mick Elborado.Annabel's music career started out venting Christchurch teen frustration in a "beginner indie" band called Mouse. Fortunately, things soon got better. She graduated to keys, guitars and vocals in the much underrated Hawaii Five-O, who were popular in Christchurch for their psychedelic surf sounds and country tinged old school rockénéroll. Bachelorette features a collection of vintage synthesisers, drum machines, real drums, bass, guitars and whatever else is lying around on the bedroom floor that day. In the end it comes out as some kind of weird vocal layered electro synth pop ľ with a hint of country thrown in for good measure. These days Bachelorette is getting out of the bedroom and enjoying some solo performances with her pre-recorded self. Recommended.
