Adelaine: Currents Review

Release Date: April 30th

Texas based female-fronted Rock act Adelaine are set to release their new LP Currents April 30th via Mosaic Artistry Group. The album’s lead single “Bad Blood” will be hitting Rock Radio March 15th and will be available for purchase on iTunes. Currents kicks off with the  song “Two Cents” a mix of distorted riffs, catchy melodies, and breezy vocals. The album’s 2nd track “Tug of War” takes a dropped down tone and features a catchy rhythmic chorus. “Square One” opens with some crafty guitar work before slowing it down for a clean showcase of vocalist Stormy Piña’s range. The band speeds it up in the album’s 4th track “Bad Blood” [a personal favorite] with a more aggressive composition; the use of darker base cords creates an interesting contrast with the song’s more emotion-driven chorus.

“We’ve Got it Now” slows it down as a Pop-Punk ballad of sorts before “Antidote” returns to Currents’ conceptual theme. “I Once Knew” chimes in next – a heartfelt singalong anthem showing a more delicate side of Adelaine. “Every Once in a While” and “Let Go” continue the album’s musical direction (the latter in a more aggressive manner similar to “Bad Blood”) before the album’s tenth song “Trail Blazer” gets a bit more instrumentally experimental. The impressive high notes of “Out of Line” sing the album to its closing track “Home” a softer piano driven number that serves as a very emotional ending to Currents.
