They say that the best partnerships in history are those involving people with different personalities or point of views because they challenge each other to create something better. You need people who disagree with you and can tell you right away when that amazing idea you got is not as great as you think it is. That is something that Me Nd Adam, a duo based out of Austin, Texas, got in their favour, because when Adam Walker and Vince Winik first met, they didn’t get along at all. Eventually, they learnt to embrace their differences and embarked into this alternative music act with influences as diverse as Willie Nelson and Blink-182.
Me Nd Adam have released a bunch of singles already, ahead of the debut album, American Drip Part I, slated for later this year. The latest one is The More I Grow Up, which is also my favourite so far. It got everything you might want in a great song: a catchy melody, good lyrics, really nice vocals and a great mix of an acoustic guitar with synth lines. This was the song I was planning to recommend on Friday, but due to last minute issues at work, I was unable to do so then. Fortunately, it is a great song to listen to any day of the week.
