CRASH ADAMS, “Caroline”
Following up the brief but infectious single “Ooh!”, Toronto duo Crash Adams have released another rocking slice-of-life in the form of “Caroline”. I like it when I can hear influences that go back to the 50’s (Buddy Holly, Big Bopper) in the songwriting. Even though that’s so long ago, it set the foundation for AM radio pop of the 70’s. “Caroline” wouldn’t have been out of place in any of those decades, or even the turn of the 2000’s alongside alt.rock bands like Fountains Of Wayne (RIP Adam) or American Hi-Fi. It’s got a fresh, timeless, and highly likeable sound that will go over well in concert. I for one will be very happy with an EP or album full of this engaging power pop, so Crash Adams are definitely on to something.
