Under 18s must be accompanied by an adult
Following a few years of performing and recording solo (see 2014’s House Music and 2016’s Old Magick), Adams has a new band – featuring members of The Drink and Absentee – and a new album; Virtue Signals (Hudson Records).
“He returns with a new band and fresh intensity, particularly on the furiously Neu!-like “Ex Future” and “Free Will”
“National treasure has a great new band”
“Indie snowflake remoaners left casting about for a smart, literate purveyor of melodic indie rock should really be taking Steven Adams to their hearts”
ECHOES AND DUST
Though the band worked on the songs for several months, the album was recorded in a little over a week, in September 2017, at Half Ton Studios in Cambridge. It was produced by Ben Nicholls,(Nadine Shah, Cara Dillon, Kings of the South Seas).
It’s over 16 years since Adams started making music with The Broken Family Band, generating critical acclaim with each subsequent release and maintaining a dedicated cult following ever since. So all these years later, having been called a national treasure enough times to fill a pirate’s chest, without ever having become an actual pop star, why does Steven Adams still do it? “I try not to overthink it or to feel reliant on this for anything other than what it is; sounds, words, feelings, and an excuse to hang out with good people. That’s virtue signalling, in case anyone asks.”
