The Adam, aka Adam Olsson, from Danish band The Good, The Bad, this week released a new single, Cathy. Taking his cues from the golden era of rock n roll’s “British Invasion” of the mid-1960s, this single comes out with vocalist Lasse Storm, on fine form as he rips into the track poring about ‘The one who got away’, as he laments,
“I thought we’d dance through the light forever, tear down the night together.”
‘Cathy’ clearly left a tattoo sized impression on this artist’s heart, not only demonstrated by the urgent cries of Storm’s vocals, but equally by the soul stirring guitar playing from The Adam, who cranks his sound all the way to rock heaven with a combination of deadly riffs, solos and instrumental choruses that remind you exactly what a great rock song can do, while the rhythm section bring the thunder and lightning to complete a perfect pandemonium.
Having started his career in the Danish underground scene playing with instrumental surf rockers The Good The Bad, supporting the likes of BRMC (Black Rebel Motorcycle Club) and playing on stage with Wayne Kramer (MC5), followed by a stint in pop icon MØ’s band, The Adam decided to put down a record which he felt showed his patronage to British rock and pop music of which he’s always adored. He explains, “I’ve always hated musicians who come from a band and have to go solo. I’ve always loved the idea of the band, so I don’t expect anything from this, but I had some good people work on the record with me and tried to create that band energy.”
The Adam is a huge fan of Liam Gallagher and The Who but working around his own vocal restrictions he further explains, “I can pitch, and I can sing, but I don’t think my voice is a lead voice. The coolest instrument in the world is that of a lead singer, and I wish I was gifted with a voice like Jim Morrison. But since I’m not, I chose to find some people whose voices I loved and asked them to sing different songs on the record.”
Cathy was released on 24 October on Straycat Records.
