Here Are Adam Green And Binki Shapiro

14 Dec

There’s no questioning it. Adam Green and Binki Shapiro are this generation’s Lee Hazelwood and Nancy Sinatra a la “Some Velvet Morning” especially on their track “Here I Am.”

Shapiro and Green take turns gently letting their voices glide in an effortless manner over the verses. When the chorus emerges, both voices overlap each other, mimicking an up and down carousel motion.

The high timbre of Shaprio’s voice, with the low timbre of Green’s, also bring forth the musical chemistry Hazelwood and Sinatra had.

Each are equally the stars in “Here I Am”, neither outperforming the other, which sets a balance to the tune. They both compliment each other, at distinct different endings of the musical spectrum.

The calm and stillness of the tune, never venturing far from an indie – alternative ballad, also draws more comparison’s to “Some Velvet Morning,” even if that song had a more psychedelic feeling to it.

Listen to Nancy and Lee back to back with Green and Shapiro’s self titled album and prepare yourself to fall into a trance. It’s the perfect music you may want to put into a sleep playlist, because its effects are so easing.

“Here I Am” is the perfect example that duo’s still work in today’s popular culture, just like She & Him, by borrowing a page out of a back catalog of retro music.
