"Led by the eponymous Adam Watkins, addy’s debut album Eclipse navigates the universal themes of friendship, heartbreak, and growth on the terrain of eloquent, country-reminiscent instrumentation. Natural ASMR-inducing textures and Casio-sequenced drum hooks create a unique rhythmic foundation for addy’s distinct lilt, itself occasionally adorned with honeysuckle-sweet pitch correction which lends the folkish twang an unusual yet modern slant. Lead single ‘Planted’ captures many of Eclipse’s salient elements with its wailing violin and pedal steel, evoking the strong emotions associated with healing and growth. On ‘Easier,’ addy longs to alleviate the pains of a near-and-dear friend, whereas the album’s triumphant apex ‘Eclipse’ turns the reflection inward in an entrancing, climactic ode to the self, punctuated with notes of optimism and hope."
