Times have been hard for everyone over the past few months, and with the UK government’s vague announcement last night, it doesn’t look like things are going to get easier any time soon. That’s why we love receiving brilliant music here at Independent Music News, and we couldn’t be more excited to share Adulterous Summer by Edward Phillips with all of you. Despite its dark lyrical content, it will lift your spirits because of how great it is.
With jangly guitars and a lovely driving bass rhythm, Adulterous Summer makes you want to shut your eyes and float away. In the track, New Jersey-based Phillips sings about a personal collapse, and it’s all highly relatable stuff. It’s catchy and heartfelt, combining introspective lyrics with memorable melodies. I’ve been singing it all day long. In fact, I think I’m starting to annoy my flatmates because my vocal delivery isn’t entirely on the same level.
This is an impressive debut single from Phillips, and his full-length album, Student Driver, is due out this summer. We can’t wait to hear it. Check out Adulterous Summer and let us know what you think!
