No stranger to the music industry, his new single ‘Judith’ is an ethereal journey into the mind of this talented musician. He has been coined as the male Björk as his blend of avant-garde, classical and electronic music has the intrinsic ability to cut straight to the soul as it refuses to meet your expectations.
Speaking on his latest mesmerizing single, “Judith”, Abraham Brody comments:
“When I wrote this song I was thinking about barriers. It’s about breaking stereotypes and social conformity. I was thinking of the power we all innately have, but which is only limited by the societies in which we live. The text is both my own as well as taken from an ancient Lithuanian song about a magical forest in which a girl is wandering, and there she meets a prince. It kind of irritates me to portray women in a way that they need to be ‘saved’ by men. Women are strong enough without men! At the same time, I was searching for feminist figures from more traditional mythology and I thought about Judith and the story of her and Holofernes… so all these different mythologies were in my head when I wrote it.”
