Adem - Launch Yourself

Finger cymbals, shuffling drums and the sound of the school music cupboard being emptied – all this sums up the new single from Adem, taken from his rather lovely album Love and Other Planets. It is a rather hypnotic affair, full of charm, a wistful and romantic tale of being left behind in love.

Its an odd choice for a single, as its quite a ramshackle track, but pretty good stuff none the less. It also features fine remixes from Four Tet and Hot Chip, whose jazzed up electronic interpretation is a highlight of this single, adding much to the original. I don’t think it likely this song will launch Adem into the hit parade, but gives a good flavour of the album.
