D.G. Adams gives us a hint as to what is coming up with his album Nexxt with his latest single Dangerous. While he is not in the throws of Shakespearian words on stage, he is coming up with deep music. Adams’ history had him rooted in acting and then it has evolved into full time musician, kicking it off back in 2011 with the nudging of best friend Torquil Campbell. The standout lyrics from this single are “so pray and shout, but don’t you forget to cast the devil out”. It plays with the symbolism of religion, but packs a heavy punch in the aspect of understanding and relating to the world around us. Instrumentally, the rhythm guitar adds atmosphere to the song and provides this rock, yet folk vibe. In the unusual time that we are living in, the lyrics fit what a lot of people are probably experiencing and mulling over in their minds. By combining the aspects of warning and optimism, D.G. Adams has listeners intrigued and wanting more.
