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, including a film trilogy and soundtrack.
Since the world last heard an ADULT. record (2008’s Let’s Feel Bad Together EP) the duo have been exploring the audio/visual aspect of their work, creating a 113-minute trilogy of horror films called the Three Grace(s) triptych. The films were completed in late 2010, screened at the Distrital Film Festival in Mexico City and the CIMM Festival in Chicago, and the Detroit Institute of Arts and the Anthology Film Archives.
It’s notable that the duo’s interest in audiovisual work grew out of the evolving visual aspect of ADULT. They collaborated on several music videos, which led them to experimenting with short films and 2012 sees them come full circle back to the studio: their double A-side single of cover versions of ‘Shari Vari’ and ’122 Hours Of Fear’ sold out and more new material is in the pipeline for a highly prestigious American label.
Adam says “What brought us back to music releases was the simple fact that we finally got our visual side and our audible sides balanced again.” And with everything in equilibrium again, we’ll be hearing a lot more of ADULT. in the near future.
