With indie rock currently typecast as the “cool” and “hip” genre nowadays, the aggressive side of rock isn’t garnering the appreciation it well-deserves. Hard rock has a taxing job of delivering songs that have just the right balance between vocal and instrumental liberty and restraint that they are not considered to be indie or too metal. So, don’t neglect the genre just because the artists aren’t donning the latest wayfarer and suspender trend or an all black get up. Hard rock has more to give and the New York City outfit, Eve To Adam, has solidified that with the lyric video for their current single, “Straitjacket Supermodel”.
With its intriguing title, Straitjacket Supermodel’s lyrical, vocal and instrumental arrangements compare and contrast well with one another, which successfully enables the single to combine elements of alternative rock and metal without fully submersing into either’s distinct sound; it ideally rides that fine line. The tune, which is off of the band’s forthcoming album, “Locked and Loaded”, is now available on iTunes. Produced by David Bassett, Eric Bass and Elvis Basket, “Locked and Loaded” is the follow up to 2011’s “Banquet For A Starving Dog” and will drop on May 21st.
