CRASH ADAMS, “Delicate”
While Toronto duo Crash Adams continue to make buzzworthy moves with fun videos and unpredictable cameos by that red couch in the artwork above throughout the city, they are on their game in terms of great songs too. “Delicate” is the latest of these, and it trades more good timey fare for a kind and gentle rocker. For yes, men cry, have feelings, and can be hurt easily – there are those who could also be self-described as “Delicate”. And chalk this one up for Crash Adams for being able to convey a sensitive message in a positive way in these times when machismo and brawn often call the shots. Don’t get me wrong – “Delicate” still rocks out as a bouncy, upbeat, tightly played track. That these guys have been able to mesh everything together into one tidy, enjoyable and meaningful package makes “Delicate” a winner.
