ADE RETURNS WITH SUBVERSIVE NEW SINGLE: “OPPOSITES”
Simultaneously evoking the heady pull of a hazy dancefloor and the dull ache of morning-after regret, the subversive dance-pop cut paints an empathetic and exhilarating picture of navigating love, lust and friendship in the algorithmic age.
Blending buzzing dance rhythms with babbling synths and clean-cut vocals, “Opposites” glimmers with bleary-eyed hedonism and sees the New York City-native amp up the confident cut-and-paste production he deployed on 2021 debut ‘Midnight Pizza’.
After establishing himself as an innovative new voice in alt-pop with his abstract debut record last year, New York City-based singer-songwriter and producer Ade combines technological advancement and an eclectic range of personal influences.
The experimental musician cites reference from Bjork to Beck and Backstreet Boys to Weezer. With his own pioneering sound stradling just about everything in-between, “Opposites” — Ade’s first glimpse of new music in over a year — arrives as a forward-thinking, dark-yet-dancey assurance of what else is bound to come.
