Straining away from the man with the mould once again, Adem returns with his second solo single, ‘Launch Yourself’.
The song is chock full of oddities, busy with percussion, half of the emphasis on clicking, ticking and knocking, the other on simple, quite monotonous layered vocals. It’s the first time Adem has written a rhythm orientated song, rather than a melodious one, and is a risk he takes bravely.
The song is like a broken up Muse record, all love and space, but so simplistic about it, rather than epic and sweeping. It’s certainly a highlight from the ‘Love And Other Planets’ album, which is worth the money if you can find it.
