Introducing Adelide: The Emerging NYC Soul-Pop Sensation

Adelide, the rising star of the New York City music scene, is ready to captivate audiences with her latest release, «Witness». This track is a unique fusion of soul-pop and disco, offering a modern interpretation of the age-old story of temptation and forbidden love. Drawing parallels to the Garden of Eden narrative, «Witness» unfolds as a tantalising reinterpretation of this timeless tale, reimagined as a modern, queer romance fuelled by synthesisers, disco balls, and desire.

A Sonic Journey Through Passion and Surrender

Adelide’s distinct vocals intertwine with pulsating rhythms and shimmering melodies, guiding listeners through a narrative that explores the complexities of passion and surrender. With its synth-driven take on 80s funk and disco, «Witness» offers a fresh sonic experience that resonates with audiences across genres.

The Visual Feast of the «Witness» Music Video

The accompanying music video for «Witness», directed and produced by Margot Bennett, takes viewers on a visually stunning journey through a modern-day Garden of Eden. With striking cinematography and choreography, the video elevates the song to a multi-sensory experience that lingers long after the music fades. Bennett’s direction adds depth and scale to the track, inviting viewers into a world where temptation lurks around every corner.

Crafted over the course of a year, «Witness» is a cohesive and compelling distillation of the eclectic influences found in Adelide’s debut EP. This release showcases her unique ability to blend coolly personal lyrics with twinkling synthesisers and lush guitars, creating her signature brand of soul-pop. Her music resides in a world of implied intimacy, like the corner of an old photograph or an overheard conversation. It is a space where she reimagines and confronts the past in a haze of fog machines and strobe lights.

Music video will be released on 14 May 2024.
