Oh, it’s all going on up north in our homestead. After Wild Beasts deliver their own brand of challenging indie and our recent gush-fest over Manchester’s MONEY, it’s time for Leeds band Fun Adults to reclaim the city’s musical credentials quicker than you can say ‘oh look, there’s Jimmy Savile roaming Headingley again.’
The Yorkshire-based four-piece recently supported MONEY on tour, which is where they first came to our attention. We wandered in thinking James Blake had gone electric, only to realise it was the entrancing and complex falsetto harmonies of Fun Adults (as seen on double A-side For Water / Peek and Punch, below). We’re expecting some more wonderful things from this bunch – catch their live dates if you can.
