Hailing from Los Angeles, Eve Adams weaves timeless folk-noir tales, unveiling “dark, domestic dramas unfolding behind closed doors.”
Adams spent her formative years traveling to and from her family farm in the tiny town of Colcord, Oklahoma. Inspired by the pastoral landscapes and the nuanced characters she grew up around, her whimsical voice illustrates a world that is familiar yet surreal, haunted by apparitions.
Check out the enchanting and lyrically vivid single, “Blues Look the Same” (below) from Adams’ Metal Bird LP. A warm electric guitar tone and a softly plucked acoustic set the mood as Adams sings with stark and fragile vulnerability. “Blues Look the Same” boasts a stripped-down and potent indie-folk vibe in line with Laura Marling and Waxahatchee.
“In 2018 I experienced a great loss in my life,” Adams shares. “I felt my old world was dead and gone. As strange as it sounds, the symbol of the airplane started showing up everywhere and offered me inspiration. They represented a place between places, or what some call Purgatory, the Bardo, or the Void. To me, Metal Bird is like a collection of seat pocket poems written on a long flight. It’s a memento of the three years I spent exploring the sky while wondering where to land.”
