Exclusive Artist Review: The Relics – “Addicted” Single

When it comes to catchy riffs and full-throttle Rock elements that perfectly implement stylizations from both yesterday and today’s Rock eras, Atlanta-based rockers The Relics‘ newest single “Addicted” absolutely delivers the goods.

Known for their anthemic riffs, punchy rhythm section and solid vocal hooks, “Addicted” is The Relics‘ newest effort that is definitely appropriately titled. From the second this track starts, it goes all in from start to finish completely uninterrupted. Their authentic sound is apparent immediately and fits in perfectly with just about any era of Rock you desire. It has elements of Classic Rock, 80s hair band Rock, 90s grunge and today’s more versatile Rock sound. But the best thing is definitely the top notch songwriting and performance value. There’s no over-production theatrics whatsoever and reinforces the plug-in-and-play formula that made Rock what it is today. The vocals have an impressive mid-to-high range that follows a formulaic melody that really drives this tune. The lyrics are clever, the catchiness is unwavering and the band is unapologetically authentic. You just can’t go wrong with this song.

The Relics have been hitting the ground running since their inception into the market and “Addicted” is definitely going to take the band to new heights. If you haven’t heard them yet, then this track will give you an instant fan status. One of the most notable parts of the song is the staying power — the power to stay with you even after it’s over and will leave an everlasting impression on you. It’ll also entice you to look into The Relics‘ discography. Past, present and future. “Addicted” releases on March 12th and can be pre-saved at the link below. You’ll be more than glad you did.
