Proving that strength of song-writing overpowers genre and style in terms of impactful first impressions – Gad’s single ADHD blends the embrace of an addictive hook with a contemporary, crisp set-up; not to mention and subject matter that connect for their modern-day relevancy. The results are simple yet brilliant.
Offering an immediately memorable, likable and in fact anthem-like hook – a catchy melody, a gravelly delivery, an upfront arrangement and reference to an increasingly relatable concept – ADHD is every bit the alternative groove its title implies.
Lyrically Gad furthers the initial strength of the hook with verses that lay bare more detail and a more personal story-line to broaden the track’s reach. Accessibility reigns for the chorus, then we get clever rhymes and individual anecdotes to help make it all more believable and genuine.
In short, a great track – familiar for its timeless qualities, not too complex by nature, but satisfying and cleanly captured for an ultimately modern, genre-free hit. Likely to be one we rightfully hear on repeat over the coming weeks.
