Adam Banner’s latest single “Rarely Wronge” kicks off with serenely winding Alt Blues Folk acoustic rhythms before their playfully endearing personality pours into the mix.
Vocally, Adam Banner’s distinctive style is somewhere between Jack White’s harmonic accordance and Kurt Cobain’s soul-soaked candid delivery in tacks such as Plateau. Which means you’ll get Blues vocal magnetism with the perfect pinch of pained antagonism.
The chorus in Rarely Wronge is what perennial earworms are made of. Despite the accessibility of Rarely Wronge, Adam Banner found plenty of room for nuanced experimentalism. Alongside the usual staple instruments you’ll need to be prepared to be transfixed by the slide guitar and endeared by the harmonica. Harmonicas may not have the best rep, but you may find your perceptions shattered after listening to Rarely Wronge.
And yes, Adam Banner did purposefully spell the title to his track wrong. That humble and self-defacing humility is just one of the reasons why you’ll be stoked you discovered them as we are.
