Rough, Raw & Dangerously Catchy.
Adam is one of those tracks that would never be a top 10 hit. However, it stands alone with its reverberating twang and guitar filled choruses. New Desert Blues show ambition and have the ability to be a successful band. The vocals are tasteful and the lyrics are quite memorable.
Adam is a bold statement tune from a band that will surely use this as a stepping-stone to gain greater momentum. Even though this song doesn’t immediately demand attention the track has a soothing effect on the ears, a typical indie song.
Adam was record of the week on the Danielle Perry’s XFM Show and It’s All Indie named it track of the week on the 20th of May and commented by saying ‘they’ve really tapped into something quite amazing here.’
Flying With Anna also commented on the song by saying ‘Adam is their finest song yet, remaining true to the dark Americana sound which has already defined them but also nodding to the expansive sounds of Arcade Fire.'
Mostly Junk Food loved the track calling it ‘rough, raw, and dangerously catchy.’
I was impressed by the efforts of the band but it didn’t strike me as a song that would become the soundtrack to my summer. I am still intrigued by the band’s sound and I will be listening to more of their music in the future.
The single is out on the 8th of July.
