Unfortunately, there can be no despair without hope, no discord without union, no darkness without light. Thus, Adam & Vince came to realize they had no choice but to embrace their differences and craft the emotionally turbulent, alternative pop duo, Me Nd Adam. Now living the dream in a small apartment in Austin, they're sharing their hope-tinged despair with the world.
Over the past year, the band has been refashioning its sound, embracing their Texas roots with a traditional rock aesthetic in instrumentation, lyrics, and arrangement, while retaining elements of their original alt electro-pop style. The new vibe is reminiscent of classic American songwriters like Tom Petty and Bruce Springsteen with a contemporary twist of pop production like heavy hitters Marshmello and Louis Bell. The band’s influences range from Willie Nelson to Meek Mill, Jason Isbell to Blink 182.
American Drip, Part I, is the musical culmination of a coming-of-age journey across America. After separately fleeing their shared hometown of Austin, meeting in New Orleans, initially hating each other, bouncing to Brooklyn, Los Angeles, and parts beyond, Adam and Vince reconnected and formed Me Nd Adam deep in the heat of a sweltering Big Easy summer. After four rough and rowdy years developing their sound on the road and in the studio, the trashcan cowbois have returned to Texas. American Drip, Part I consists of twelve trash-wave trailblazin’ hits. Buckle up.
Me Nd Adam have garnered millions of streams across DSPs, with their music garnering acclaim from the likes of Rolling Stone, Alt Press, American Songwriter, Wonderland Magazine and The Line of Best Fit. They have also received notable sync placements, such as MTV’s ‘Real World’. The music video for their most recent single “Heartbreak Kid” was a finalist at the Austin Music Video Festival, nominated for Video of the Year.
After honing their live show at venues like Irving Plaza and The Fonda, Me Nd Adam opened to a sold-out crowd for Big Freedia at the Mohawk in Austin. Since then, the band has been tearing through the Austin music scene with appearances at Pride Fest ATX, Mohawk, Emo’s, The Parish and a sold-out headline performance at Stubb’s.
American Drip Part I, is available worldwide via Las Vegas-based indie Handwritten Records.
