Abbe May features in RTRFM’s video series ‘The View from Here’

Local musician Abbe May features in the latest edition of RTRFM’s A View From Here video series.

The local community radio station have teamed up with Fremantle Story to create the new series of The View From Here, RTRFM’s long running video series highlighting local bands in unique and special locations.

For this series the crew heads to the port city to showcase the amazing spaces in and around Fremantle with some of Perth’s favourite musicians.

The short musical film captures Abbe May as she takes over the Fly By Night Musicians Club in the amazing Victoria Hall on High Street, Fremantle.

May, joined by KT Rumble (Bass) and Matt Wright (Drums) roll through thirteen minutes of blistering, guitar ladened classic Abbe May sounds. Constantly re-inventing herself, Abbe takes on the roll as front person better than anyone in Australia.

They roll through four songs – Are We Flirting, Like Me Like I Like You, Universe and Mamailan Locomotion –  ebbing and flowing through the sublime to the straight up rocking, showing her range as a player and a vocalist.

Check out the live performance below.
