Steven Adams returns with new band The French Drops – Listen

Ex Broken Family Band-er Steven Adams is back with his new band The French Drops – featuring members of The Drink – and a new album ‘Virtue Signals’ which is due out via Hudson Records on 4th May. They’ll be heading out on a UK tour in May starting off at The Castle in Manchester on 2 May – full dates are below.  He’s shared the opening track to the new album below, called ‘Bad Apples’.  “You’re part of something,” Adams sings, “the thing you tore apart” – a song about the flag-waving, supposed patriots whose voices are drowning out the national conversation. In his own words: “That song came last and it alludes to ideas without being too specific. I’ve always liked writers who leave things open to interpretation, people like Britt Daniel from Spoon, or John Lennon. It’s a kind of absurdist take on where the right-wing press are trying to lead us.” It’s a cracking tune apart from anything else.
