From the Inbox (10/30/20) // Black Adidas – “My Favourite Song”

FROM THE INBOX:

Tune your radio to the left of the dial, and discover your new favourite song.

LA based indie punk artist Black Adidas returns to release his latest powerful, raw, and cheeky single “My Favourite Song”. Produced by The Mighty Lemondrops’ Dave Newton, “My Favourite Song” features crunching riffs, eclectic arrangement, and the sort of infectious melody that will inject a musical ardor into any listener. “My Favourite Song” once again explores Black Adidas’ creative range, with the sort of intricate production and unique instrumentation that sets him apart from most punk these days. In a troubling year to say the least, Black Adidas delivers a bit of escapism. Make sure to add this release to your daily rotation as it will brighten any bad day.

I’m a huge fan of the musical direction that Black Adidas has been going in with the last couple singles. The synth made the previous single, “Be Cool,” really stand out to me. It’s inclusion here is a huge part of why I like “My Favourite Song” so much too.

Punk music is still subculture, but barely. Everyone has an idea of what “punk” sounds like. It’s refreshing to see an artist playing around with the genre. It’s still a guitar riff type song, but having the sound of a Roland Juno 60 adds a great layer to the song. It would have worked as a purely guitar song, but I think it works much better like this.
