D.G. Adam’s Nest Of Vipers Brings The Angst & Rock In Latest Album

3 Apr

Coming after the debut album of Feminine Endings, Nest of Vipers carries references of its own throughout the song list. Inspired and fueled with creative sparks after realizing that the translation of Cancún meant “land of snakes”, listeners can sense that each and every one of these songs have an intention and association with them. One of the standout tracks on the album include I’m Writing To Say with lyrics such as “remember I love you as long as I’m alive”. The song has a no frills arrangement, but anyone who has gone through heartbreak is immediately connected to that memory due to D.G. Adam’s vibrant writing. Some influences that one can connect to this sound include The Hollies, David Bowie, and Rufus Wainwright. On the other end of the arrangement and musical tone, include Platonic Lovers. Adam’s does an excellent job at incorporating Latin and jazz elements within the song and the feel-good doo wop background vocals give the song added atmosphere. From start to finish, Nest of Vipers surprises listeners along the way with a variety of sounds, themes, and the auditory experience along the way.
