Detroit’s ADULT. have long blended electronic elements with a sharper punk edge, and this track “Idle”, from their forthcoming fifth album The Way Things Fall, is the epitome of that intersection. It’s a living, breathing concoction of analog instrumentation and electronic aesthetic, with a minimal diffidence that pushes and pulls.
The songs on the record are “the closest we have to come to writing traditional ‘pop’ songs, even though we know they are totally mutants,” the duo’s Adam Lee Miller explained.
It’s been a few years since the group have released new music, much to the chagrin of their fans, but thankfully they didn’t spend all that time doing nothing, despite what the lyrics of this track would have you believe.
