At last, the real electroclash! Detroit’s Adam Lee Miller and Nicola Kuperus specialise in harsh, unforgiving music which makes few concessions to the dancefloor. The duo instead deploy queasy synth textures and primitive beats, recalling the early brutalist electro of Throbbing Gristle, The Normal and Cabaret Voltaire. Adult.’s music seems similarly designed to produce an involuntary physical response?opening instrumental “The Cold Call” disorientates the listener with its sick, shuddering synthetics and stroboscopic blips. Elsewhere Kuperus’ callous vocals taunt and cajole over a sustained electronic assault. There’s admittedly very little light and shade here, but Adult. deserve respect if only for making an almost overwhelmingly vicious album that succeeds on its own unreasonable terms.
