On 2nd October, German quartet ABBY unveil their second album, Hexagon, via Island Records.

With no demos prepared before entering the studio, Hexagon was recorded over the course of 16 months, giving the band time to explore and expand their sound in every conceivable direction. Most notably, the band has embraced techno influences, running alongside their more psychedelic instincts. Vocalist Filou explains, “We can all get along with techno’s abstractions and feeling of togetherness. We all like to party – all four of us soon realised that Berlin is not just an aspiration, it’s a real way of life that you have to approach with respect.” Watch the video for new single ‘Hush’ below

After a string of EPs, which included collaborations with Moderat, George Morales and Apparat, and an appearance on John Talabot’s DJ-Kicks compilation, 2013 saw the release of ABBY’s debut album Friends and Enemies. The band shared stages with the likes of Everything Everything and …And You Will Know Us by the Trail of Dead, as well as sets at SXSW, Iceland’s Airwaves festival and Glastonbury.
