EP Review - Garth Adam - Storm in a Tea Cup - The Mag

Garth Adam’s fourth release since 2002 is his new EP; Storm in a Tea Cup.

Sounding like some version of Crowded House with a soppy uplifting Lighthouse Family ethos - it’s relevance in today’s music market is questionable.

With an established career behind him in Australia, his talent isn’t in dispute – more so whether the borderline cheesy melodies and attempt at socially- conscious lyrics like ‘What is the reason for the gap between the rich and the poor?’ can really cut it in such a talent rich industry.

Whilst a bit of uplifting music or profound vocals are no doubt welcome in the midst of a rather depressing winter and Garth Adam may be the secret to cheering many a credit crunch victim up, for me, I’m not so sure.
