Discovery: Wilder Adkins

Birmingham based indie-folk artist Wilder Adkins has released a new track titled Marietta, which takes its inspiration from the Bruce Springsteen classic I’m Goin’ Down.

It may be a cover, but Adkins has managed to make the track truly his own, and we didn’t actually realise it was a cover until the chorus. It almost sounds like something Brian Fallon would do as a cover, although that may just be the vocal style that makes us think that, as Adkins has a similar tone to his voice. Nevertheless it’s a wonderful cover and one that Springsteen fans should be able to enjoy as well as fans of Adkins – take a listen below and see what you think!
