Track Of The Day: adults – ‘things we achieve’

Following the release of their debut EP The Weekend Was Always Almost Over back in 2018, and the split Space Armadillo EP with fellow GIHE faves Bitch Hunt in 2020, South London band adults have announced that their debut album will be released in October. And now, following recent single ‘all we’ve got // all we need’, they’ve shared another brand new offering.

Propelled by their trademark jangling melodies and buoyant scuzzy energy, ‘things we achieve‘ reflects on the pressures of living in a Capitalist society as honey-sweet vocals interweave between whirring hooks. Showcasing adults’ ability to juxtapose poignant subject matter with an irresistibly blissful, catchy musicality, this latest single offers a slice of gloriously fizzing indie-pop that’ll both uplift and inspire. I just can’t get enough of adults’ fuzzy, frenetic drive, with shades of the joyous, danceable allure of Los Campesinos, and eagerly await the full album release…

Of the track, the band explain:

“(the song’s about) how capitalism makes us forget what matters, how to be kind to people and to enjoy living…”

for everything, always, the upcoming debut album from adults, is out in October via Fika Recordings.
