“Narrow Spines is about weakness,” explains Adam. “When someone is so trapped in their own grief they aren’t able to comprehend the people around them”. The song has a much broader intensity to the sound than on his previous single Man or Beast – Narrow Spines embraces a much larger sound. However, the themes remain close to Adam’s heart as he uses his music to express raw, personal emotions which are also portrayed in the video.
Adam’s incredible voice paired with post-rock influenced guitars and echoing drums is a beautiful and captivating combination. His sound is not dissimilar to acts like Frightened Rabbit and Dry The River but also draws comparisons to Ben Howard and Death Cab For Cutie. This single shows another side to Adam, an intriguing side that feels like a progression from his previous singles.
Adam’s previous supporters include BBC 6Music’s Lauren Laverne, Clash, Artrocker and Radio X’s John Kennedy. Working again with producer Matt Harris (HAWK), Narrow Spines demonstrates another side to Adam’s songwriting in advance of a new EP due later this year.
Narrow Spines is out on April 22nd 2016 via Veta Records.
