Our Song of the Day come from Glasgow based Robin Adams with Holy Smoke which features on his forthcoming new album ‘The Garden’. The album’s central theme is that of the struggling artist, as well as taking inspiration from the life and death of Vincent van Gogh and the sacrifices he made for art Robin’s own struggles naturally come to the fore as he opens himself to the cathartic nature of songwriting.
The entire album was recorded by Adams on his own, in a bedroom over looking a garden. “I approached every song as I imagined Vincent van Gogh might have went at a painting. There had to be the capturing of a moment, there had to be a rawness and a truth in every performance. If I didn’t transcend in some respect during the song, I knew it wasn’t acceptable.”
The Garden is released on April 13th through Backshop Records.
