Adaline is a young lady from Vancouver or Toronto, so let's settle on Canada. She's a very talented young lady who writes her own songs, sings them of course and plays the keyboards.
Not in a gentile piano style, more like a heavy electronica vibe. You just need only one listen to Adaline's new album, Modern Romantics and, like me, you will be hooked.
Prepare to be converted.
The making of the new album, Modern Romantics
A behind the scenes look at the making of "Modern Romantics", Adaline's sophomore record produced by Hawksley Workman, Marten Tromm and Tino Zolfo. Songs featured: "Wasted Time", "That's What You Do Best", "The Noise" and "Keep Me High"
Modern Romantics came out Nov. 1st, 2011 on Light Organ Records
Something from last year
Keep Me High
Streaming Cafe hosted bands for the Break Out West Festival , part of the 2010 Western Canadian Music Awards weekend. Adaline performed at the Thursday, Oct. 21st Showcase presented by The Peak Performance Project.
Here's a music video Adaline made a couple of years ago, very cool retro atmosphere.
Check out some more of the awesome new album.
Talk about starting with a bang. Adaline achieves near Judy Garland levels of melodrama on That's What You Do Best, the stately electro-torch song that opens her new album, Modern Romantics. But she doesn't get there without boxing your ears with wiggy sax (from Shuffle Demon Richard Underhill) and unhinged guitar solos (by Hawksley Workman) on the way, the latter sounding like it was recorded in a reinforced missile silo. There's a lot of tastefully rendered sonic action on the way to that quivering, love-burnt climax.
