Hear a New Song From Madeline (Feat. Members of Wowser Bowser)

Locally bred singer-songwriter Madeline Adams has been camped out in Atlanta for a bit now, so it’s unsurprising that the first bit of recorded material we’ve heard from her in months features contributions from three members of an ATL outfit, avant-pop group Wowser Bowser.  

“Parents Houses,” a reflective, holiday-themed song, is lusher and sleeker than Madeline’s past work, though the singer remains the focal point; with its faded drum programming and icy synths, it’s a lovely, grayscaled tune.

Madeline plays in Athens at the Flicker Theatre & Bar this Thursday, Dec. 5 as part of the annual Schlitzmas happening. Read more about that festival in this week’s Flagpole
