[LISTEN] Adam & Elvis - Modern Hitz [IAI PREMIÈRE]

We're very pleased to share with you a brand new track from Adam & Elvis, "Modern Hitz". It's lifted from their album "Through Snow and Small Talk", which is out today, and is the opening track of the LP, and it comes after a smattering of praise from music critics such as Artrocker, Clunk and Louder Than War, and after hearing this you can tell why, it's a real alt-rock gem laden with swagger.


Speaking about their album the band say - "We’ve all been there. Another Saturday night enduring identikit clubs, watery drinks and cheesy chart music in the vain hope of stumbling across a special someone. It’s a state of affairs that Adam & Elvis sum up with characteristically mischievous prose in ‘Modern Hitz’, inspired, as vocalist Patrick Malone explains, “by times I have crossed my fingers queueing for a club, hoping the music isn’t depressing and the company isn't awful”. At the heart of the song’s intoxicating blend of carnivalesque power pop, new-wave funk, silvery synth and quivering guitar stands a hooky chorus that candidly summarises Patrick’s nightlife desires: “Please can I have a kiss/What the hell do you think I’m dancing for?” ... "
