Over the last 23 years, Detroit
-
based ADULT. (Nicola
Kuperus & Adam Lee Miller) have released seven albums
across a multitude of labels: DAIS, Mute, Ghostly
International, Thrill Jockey,
Third Man Records,
Clone
Records, and their own Ersatz Audio.
They have remixed

(Magazine). This past year they’ve had the honor of
sharing the stage with such personally inspirationing
bands as Nitzer Ebb, L7, Severed Heads and Gary
Numan. They where also included on
Mute Records’
2019 release STUMM433, a tribute to John Cage’s game
changing composition 4’33” and featuring such artists as
Depeche Mode, New Order and Cabaret Voltaire.
As they continue
to mine their own unique sound of the

-
garde meets electronics
meets punk meets your
own discomfort
ADULT. are pleased to announce the
completion of album number eight. This album was
conceived in a black hole. After their last album THIS
BEHAVIOR (DAIS 2018), written in a majestic cabin in the
snow covered woods of
northern Michigan, the band
wanted to do something that was a total contrast
-
something less peaceful, even if writing THIS BEHAVIOR
was partially like a scene out of “The Shining.” The focus
this time around was sensory deprivation; nothing to look
at,
no interference, just darkness. From May

Body of Light
Body of Light is an electronic duo and synth-pop band made up by brothers Andrew and Alexander Jarson. Starting as an exploration of noise, sound, and rich vocal loops, over their 10 years of existence, they have found a new foothold as something more complex, structured, and moving.

Their music is not only individually personal, but draws from shared experiences between the two brothers. Aspects from their music come from their own personal lives as well as our shared life experiences. Long time fans and creators of all kinds of electronic music, elements of new wave, freestyle, grunge, goth, and techno mesh into their work, like old radio signals bouncing off one another in time and space.

Haunting keys, swelling pads, and punching drums score their music as Alex weaves lyrics in a mystic, yet directly romantic approach. They prove to be a duo that is perfect for the dance floor, without a fear of trend or passing fashion.

In their 2019 LP Time to Kill, Body of Light finds themselves refining their brand of cold and driving synth pop with a bold pallet of sounds and a focus on newfound technique and purpose. Like the pale digital stare of the multitude of devices surrounding our daily lives, the songs weave stories of love and obsession in an era of technical bondage and fleeting exhilaration. That is not to say the album carries a message of pessimism, rather it’s meant to act as a startling reminder of how important our time is. Spanning 9 songs, the rhythm pounds infectiously and the synths penetrate like a knife. Produced by Matia Simovich at Infinite Power Studios in LA, the brothers found new intention through the sleek and heavy production offered. Written over a period of intense and profound change, this is an album that is set to stand apart from their previous output.
