“Let’s go for a ride.” So begins Birmingham-born but Edinburgh-based singer/songwriter Steve Adey’s tale of a couple’s futile attempts to stoke the dying embers of their relationship. The first single to be taken from well-received debut album All Things Real, it’s a real choker of a record.
“Happy making miserable music”, Adey accompanies his lugubrious
vocals with suitably downbeat piano-playing. Imagine Nick Cave sans Bad
Seeds and you’re halfway to conceptualizing Adey’s sound.
Although English is far from being his first language, an Italian admirer
sums up what it means to listen to Adey.
