Throughout Kirsten Adamson’s latest video, a repeated question flashes on the screen: “Does Kirsten have too many feelings?” This intriguing question is part of the 1980s-style game show that Adamson travels back in time to participate in for the video created by Ruth Barrie of Waltzer Films. Adamson says that ‘Take Me As I Am’ is about, “Overthinking,” and the lyrics explore the need for acceptance and security in a relationship: “I’ll stop pretending // If you say out loud // That you’ll take me as I am // Take me as I am with all of these feelings.”
‘Take Me As I Am’ is full of dreamy guitars and layered, cosmic sounds that transport us into the ether, especially when Jon Mackenzie’s lead guitar takes off. The Scottish singer-songwriter’s vocal melody and delivery are as captivating as ever.
Earlier this year, Adamson released the critically-acclaimed ‘Landing Place’, a beautifully tuneful album that featured a set of deeply personal songs.
