Adaline: Free sneak peek

By Michael Donley

I was first introduced to Adaline when by chance I caught her performance at Vancouver's The Media Club in 2008. Although time passed, I always remembered her interesting and refreshing approach to her craft, and the Streaming Cafe was able to have her come down and perform a solo show in March 2010. Later that year, this time with the full force of her band Adaline showcased at the cafe during Break Out West Music festival (watch it!)

Adaline is now getting set to unleash a her second album Modern Romantics this fall and it is sure to be a great listen. The new full length is produced by Hawksley Workman who has produced albums for some well know Canadian talent; Tegan and Sara, Serena Ryder, Jeremy Fisher and Hey Rosetta! to name a few.

“I wanted to take a very European approach to the record,” she says, adding that she and her busiest partner, Hawksley Workman – who played on and produced nine of its twelve tracks – were throwing names like Portishead, Bat for Lashes, La Roux, Beck, and Goldfrapp around when they entered Toronto’s Canterbury Studio for four weeks. “Groove artists,” she calls them. “I wanted it to sound world class. A lot of people seem to be doing these very chill, laid back, organic records, and I kinda wanted to be a little more aggressive in terms of the sounds and production.”

Modern Romantics will be available on November 1, 2011, but for a limited time you can get a free sneak-peek by downloading her pre-release Wasted Time on her Bandcamp page.
