The term epic is bounded about all too easily these days, but having already caught the ear of the likes of 6Music, XFM, Amazing Radio, BBC Radio 2 it is fair to say that young Londoner Adam Cleaver is the owner of an epic vocal range; a genuinely blistering talent which is beautifully illustrated in new single ‘Man Or Beast’ the title track of his anticipated upcoming EP (released Sept 18th).
Cleaver writes captivating alternative folk that captures his personal journey through his twenties - a wistful and sometimes tongue-in-cheek glance into a world filled with continually questioning fears, anxieties and trust. ‘Man Or Beast’ drills down on the emotions of making those big life decisions and the drastic changes that they may bring.
With Matt Harris (HAWK) on production duty, a beautiful, organic and deep sound has been lovingly captured with a tone of importance and emotion permeating the entire EP - intricate musicality mixed with substantially layered harmonies underneath Adam’s beguiling vocals have led to the creation of something that really raises the stakes for the young talent.
Title single ’Man Or Beast’ is released via Veta Records on Friday 4th September with the namesake EP arriving a fortnight later on 18.09.15
