Via The Sound Of Vinyl:
Adult Jazz first appeared back in 2013 amid a flurry of praise surrounding their joyous and addictive debut single “Springful”. Their unanimously acclaimed debut album, “Gist Is” (released in 2014), was a startling and mesmerising voyage from start to finish, taking a labyrinthine, fragmented pop-not-pop path, while maintaining a sense of humour in spite of its complex themes surrounding religion, gender and humanity.
Following the release of “Gist Is,” the band went on to play sell out tours around Europe as well as festivals including Latitude, End Of The Road, CMJ and Iceland Airways, attracting endorsements along the way from peers including David Byrne and Björk.
Adult Jazz now return with new album ‘Earrings Off!’, their first for Tri Angle. In contrast to “Gist Is,” “Earrings Off!” finds the band confidently veering into more electronic territory with elasticated beats and harsh vocal experimentations riding alongside off kilter horn arrangements and treated string sounds, all shaped by the band’s inimitable and unpredictable songwriting skills.
“Earrings Off!” is the sound of a band breaking away from the crowd and becoming all the better for it.
Get through the rest of your day and leave this on repeat!
