New York singer-songwriter and producer ADE is back with innovative new single: “Opposites”.
Simultaneously evoking the heady pull of a hazy dancefloor and the dull ache of morning-after regret, the subversive dance-pop cut paints an empathetic and exhilarating picture of navigating love, lust and friendship in the algorithmic age.
Blending buzzing dance rhythms with babbling synths and clean-cut vocals, “Opposites” glimmers with bleary-eyed hedonism and sees the New York City-native amp up the confident cut-and-paste production he deployed on 2021 debut ‘Midnight Pizza’.
Of the heady new track, Ade explains:
“”Opposites” came about as a dance track experiment. I had a lot of fun making “Another Weekend” from my first record, I wanted to go a little deeper down the rabbit hole and see what else I could find. Once I laid the vocal sample in the chorus, the story felt very clear — what do you do when you’re falling for someone who your friends think is trouble?”
After establishing himself as an innovative new voice in alt-pop with his abstract debut record last year, New York City-based singer-songwriter and producer Ade combines technological advancement and an eclectic range of personal influences.
With Paste Magazine praising Ade’s ability to “harken back to a tried-and-true trope of infectious grooves with nihilistic undertones” and The Line of Best Fit lauding his “own undeniable style” that “toes the line between pop sensibilities and dancefloor inflections to create a sound that is wholly infectious”, the experimental musician cites reference from Bjork to Beck and Backstreet Boys to Weezer. With his own pioneering sound stradling just about everything in-between, “Opposites” — Ade’s first glimpse of new music in over a year — arrives as a forward-thinking, dark-yet-dancey assurance of what else is bound to come.
