A queer comic book nerd Ian Able serves us with his recent single ‘Right Hand Man’ – a naughty, effervescent and fun piece with some catchy melodies and provocative lyricism.
Imagine you’re getting a drink at a sunny gay resort and you spot a cute stranger flirting with your man. Then imagine you don’t even care: that’s what this song is about.
‘Right Hand Man’ is accompanied by a low-concept music video following a big juicy butt as it walks around the Hell’s Kitchen neighborhood of New York City, bouncing from bar to bar, meeting up with friends, and even getting some light fondling action.
These days I think we can also use entertainment that lightens the mood and doesn’t take itself too seriously, I certainly don’t.
Ian Abel is not just your standard indie artist. Mixing his sensual voice with psychedelic electro-pop arrangements he’s like if Sam Smith met Robyn or Jessie Ware met James Blake, all with a side of Peter Gabriel.
