Adrian Underhill – „Cruel“

unnamed

„This song means a lot to me. It comes from a place of honestly trying to listen and hear other people’s experience of the world – particularly those whose voices are often silenced and shut down. I think those are the voices we need to be listening to and raising up right now. “

„“Cruel” was produced by Kindness (Robyn, Solange, Blood Orange) along with the rest of my debut album which is set for release later this year. The 10 songs on ‘CU Again’ are the culmination of many years of sonic exploration. Having grown up in Vancouver before moving to Montreal and then Toronto, spending time in rock bands and making lo-fi recordings on my own, before moving towards a 70s songwriter vibe infused with a more modern production style & sound.

On ‘Cruel’, I was lucky to have Damon Riddick (DāM-FunK) on drums, Keith Eaddy on bass and Blue May on guitar with those perfectly placed guitar licks. I love how the live drums and bass sit overtop of the samples and drum machine giving the track a unique rhythmic backdrop that keeps pushing you forwards.“
