Biography

Don’t call it a comeback, because ADULT. haven’t been away. It’s been a while since the world heard any recordings from Detroit electropunk pioneers Adam Lee Miller and Nicola Kuperus, it’s true, but that’s because the restlessly creative duo have been busy with other projects: a film trilogy, a soundtrack and an epic home renovation.

Adult were one of the many bands who emerged during the electroclash scene at the start of the century. Their first 2 albums were brilliant, and they were probably the standout act of the period. However it all went terribly wrong with subsequent releases, which to be blunt were just a noise.

Therefore when I heard that they had a new album coming out after a few years hiatus, I was not sure what to expect. I should not have worried. Quite simply a brilliant return to form. This is probably their best album yet. For anyone interested in synth/electro, please check this out.

Female vocalist / drum machines / synthesizers 18 May 2013
By Jason Harrington - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Female vocalists, synthesizers, and drum machine, are all ingredients that peak my interest. Also, I am a real sucker for giving bands a chance based on their cover art alone. Luckily, in the case of ADULT., their cover art has reached a fever pitch with this album and the previous. It's very descriptive of the music, which is structured, rigid, a bit uncomfortable or absurd, but also it's tone color seems to match the literal hues of the cover; The brown has a faded and nostalgic feel, the blue uniforms add cold tones, and the neon helmets add a splash of warm nausea. Well, OK, maybe I can't describe that too well, but maybe you get what I mean. If you get what's great about the cover art, then you might get what's great about ADULT.

Another factor of my attraction is that "electroclash" is not a dirty word to me like it is with most critics. I live in Arkansas where keyboard bands are rare, and my introduction to that genre was when I went to a boring Trans-Am show, and saw their incredible opening act A.R.E. Weapons. I did not immediately like them, but they had some jams, and eventually they were a favorite of mine. I also got Teaches of Peaches, and I find it classic. ADULT. are a lot different than Peaches, but they could play the same tour, obviously.

The first natural comparison is Le Tigre, or Ladytron, but those groups are less consistent. This is more similar to older Ladytron, because of the stiff and robotic quality. However, the best comparison for the vocals is Sleater Kinney, but I like this a lot better. Another band that comes to mind is Light Asylum, although they have a much more robust vocal, none the less, Light Asylum are a bit stiff and structured like ADULT.

If you are expecting a really smooth synth-pop sound like Grimes or Purity Ring, that is not what this is, sure they all reek of 80's nostalgia, but ADULT's refusal to move beyond their obsession with Tubeway Army and John Foxx, has afforded them the time to chisel a niche in the electronic genre, just by narrowly doging the pitfalls that come from trying to branch out and experiment with other sounds. By contrast, they very much know whom they are paying homage to, and they waste no time in selfish indulgences on their way to seizing their spot alongside all the other artists I have mentioned here. Really the only reason I gave it a 4 is because the vocals can be a bit of a thorn in your side until you decide to embrace them.

This goes good in your MP3 shuffle alongside: HEALTH, Pictureplane, The Soft Moon (be sure to check them out), Crystal Castles, Minitel Rose, Future Islands, The Knife, Neon Neon, Casiokids...you get the point. Some people will find this group a bit canned and range-less, but it's that recognizable quality that makes them really well suited for the modern era of shuffled MP3 listening.
Like a blast from the past, and even better in concert 15 Sep 2013
By Paul Allaer - Published on Amazon.com

I just saw Adult. (yes, with period) in concert (more on that later). Let me state upfront that I am basically a newcomer to this Adult. party. This is the latest album from the husband-and-wife team of Adam Miller (synthesizers) and Nicola Kuperus (vocals) that comprises Adult.

"The Way Things Fall" (10 tracks; 44 min.) starts off with "Heartbreak", one of the more irresistible songs on this album, with the synthesizers beeping and bopping like they are straight from the late 70s or early 80s. The same could be said for the next two tracks, "Idle (Second Thoughts)" and "Together, We Fall". Next up is "New Frustration", with Adams'synths setting the nervous, up-tempo direction. "Love Lies" is a slower song, you could call it an electronic ballad. The good times continue on the second half of the album, check out the Giorgio Moroder-reminding "Nothing Lasts". The only track on here that I'm not crazy about is the 6 min. "A Day Like Forever", which goes out too long and without direction. It all leads to the last full-fletched track, another long (6+ min.) song, "We Will Rest" (it is followed by a 1 min. instrumental album-closer). In all, this is quite the album! This is sure to end up on my year-end list of 'best albums'.

I just saw Adult. this weekend at the Laneway music fest at the Meadow Brook near Detroit, and live the duo just absolutely killed. Playing mostly dance-oriented material (including a bunch from this album), it sounded at times during their sets like Kraftwerk-meets-Moroder-meets early Human League. It was nothing short of fantastic. If you have a chance to see this duo, by all means do not miss them! Meanwhile, "The Way Things Fall" is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
