PUBLISHER’S PICK OF THE WEEK (By Adam Waldman)
EVE TO ADAM – “Tongue Tied”
Many of today’s current hard rock acts seem to tailor their sound specifically to get airplay on Active Rock radio. Eve To Adam has already been embraced by the format (although not nearly as much as they deserve), so it would be understandable for them to rely upon the sound that got them noticed in the first place. To their credit, Eve To Adam continues to reinvent themselves, writing music that clearly is born more out of passion than a desire for radio spins. Their latest single, “Tongue Tied,” stands out from typical Active Rock tracks because it embraces the grittier, sleazier sound of Guns N’ Roses, the alternative vibe of classic Stone Temple Pilots and bluesy guitar solos that harken back to the days of Eric Clapton with Cream. And yet, somehow, “Tongue Tied” has a current flavor that would make it a standout track on Active Rock radio. In a format that sometimes feels like it’s on autopilot, we need more bands like Eve To Adam to push the envelope and rise above the din. This track is a home run!
