8/10 Phil Staff review, 18 October 2012
I pulled one of these in our stock room earlier before and I was slightly bemused by the name. Fun Adults...where do these guys get their names from? Well this is their debut single for Tough Love (though it’s their second release) and what’s it like I hear you ask?
It’s pretty good actually. If I was lazy I’d say it’s on a folktronica tip but as I’m not lazy (errr...) and as we can’t use that word anymore I won’t. It’s got lush acoustic guitars and lots of nice clicky complex percussion with some sensitive man vocals over it. It reminds me a little of Radiohead when they went all experimental and beardy. They use electronics subtly and cleverly over the more folk instrumentation and it’s extremely accomplished sounding.The flip is equally as enticing with layered high pitched vocals, acoustic guitar and slow clicky beat. This one reminds me a little of some of the odder James Blake stuff. An interesting single! I think these might be a band to keep an eye on!
