Cronulla singer/songwriter Adam Newling has offered up another alt-country gem with the raucous and stirring new single, ‘Two Of A Kind’.
The latest single is an epic, sprawling track that burns with a white-hot intensity. The guitar-led track see’s Adam Newling expertly examine the trials and tribulations of a relationship indebted in drug and alcohol abuse. On ‘Two Of A Kind’ a heavier, more urgent side of Newling is on display. His signature husky growls feel more desperate and crucial than ever.
“Two Of A Kind is about me love-hate relationship with sobriety spawned by the end of a love-hate relationship with a beautiful girl,” explains Newling.“It’s about boredom and abuse and a fine line drawn between being a partner in crime or being downright destructive. This song was boring in a dark place but nowadays it’s just a bitter fun.”
Following four intiate sold-out headline shows at Sydney venue The Brass Monkey. He also recently supported surf-rock heavy-hitters Skegss last week at four shows at Brunswick Heads.
This is the third, very excellent single we’ve heard from Newling this year. The rocker won us over with debut single ‘Cheer Up’ back in March, a track that highlighted his propensity for piercing and introspective songwriting.
He then followed it up with the simmering and sexy single ‘Morning Breath’ — an effortlessly cool exploration of young drunken sex.
If these three releases are anything to go off, we’re certain that the future is bright for Adam Newling.
