NMM SoundBytes: Adam Randy Warns “Don’t Play” with His Heart

Adam Randy may not be a name you know now, but his sound will surely feel familiar to many. With a decided New Wave and 80s alternative throwback sound, Randy blends influences from a variety alternative acts, some classic rock, and a dash of 80s hair metal to create a sound that would make fans of Devo proud. Keyboards, driving rhythm, guitars, and soaring vocals take center stage as Randy.

Randy explains the song:

I wanted to write, record and release a song that really rocked and had a driving beat and electric guitars mixed with strings, a bit different than most of my other songs. I got the idea for the music from an obscure Neil Diamond Song called “Diamond Girls” which has a similar vibe and arrangement. The message of the song is Don’t Play games with me or you’ll be sorry!

Retro is a word thrown around too often, but it’s the perfect word to describe Randy’s sound and overall vibe. If you don’t want to take my word for it, check out “Don’t Play” for yourself below.

Justin has been running websites since his first Geocities site in 1994, but only did he ever start covering anything of substance years later. After he stopped regularly running local concerts in Northern NJ and the greater Philly area, he knew he needed to step up his writing game if he expected to continue to get free music to listen to. He writes regularly here and at Cinapse, as well as contributing to a few other sites on occasion. He likes music, film, the Philadelphia Eagles, the 76ers, talking about Criminal Justice, reading Intelligence Report, and his family... not in that order. His beautiful wife is far more talented than he is and his kids far more adorable... and crazy.
