The Adam, real name, Adam Olsson, hails from Copenhagen but has been living just outside Oslo for the past nine years, combining his guitar and music composition work with filmmaking and visual production.
Having started his career in the Danish underground scene playing with instrumental surf rockers The Good The Bad, supporting the likes of BRMC (Black Rebel Motorcycle Club) and playing on stage with Wayne Kramer (MC5), followed by a stint in pop icon MØ’s band, The Adam decided to put down a record which he felt showed his patronage to British rock and pop music of which he’s always adored.
Ahead of the release of that record, due in early 2023, comes a live version of “Geronimo”, the first single which not only features Rasmus Littauer (School of X), but is a track we’re stoked to be premiering right here:
A huge fan of Liam Gallagher and The Who, The Adam explains what we can expect from the new project: “I’ve always hated musicians who come from a band and have to go solo. I’ve always loved the idea of the band, so I don’t expect anything from this, but I had some good people work on the record with me and tried to create that band energy.”
The Adam goes on to admit:
I can pitch, and I can sing, but I don’t think my voice is a lead voice. The coolest instrument in the world is that of a lead singer, and I wish I was gifted with a voice like Jim Morrison. But since I’m not, I chose to find some people whose voices I loved and asked them to sing different songs on the record.” ”
Recording and producing the album with Søren Vedsgaard Christensen, organist with Danish rockers The Blue Van, The Adam featuring The Adam is a debut album which is set to alight 2023. In the meantime, “Geronimo” is out now through Stray Cat Records.
