Adventures - Clear My Head With You EP

Adventures - Clear My Head With You EP
Record Label: No Sleep Records
Release Date: June 18, 2013


Adventures are a side project band. Wait! Come back! It's the side project of 3 parts of Code Orange Kids! Okay, have I got your attention back? In a world of pretty pointless, rubbish sides projects, the good folks of Code Orange Kids are far too awesome to present us with something that wasn't worth our ears' love, hence the creation of indie-punkers Adventures. Exhilarating, bouncy and, most importantly, fun, Adventures' off beat punk rock is some of the most memorable music that you'll hear this year. Clear My Head With You is four tracks of riotous, exciting music that will most definitely leave its mark on you.

If you're looking for more Code Orange Kids music, this probably isn't the right place to come. Adventures are an incredibly different proposition. Gone is the brutality and general hardcore of these guys' day job, Adventures revel in erratic, lo-fi leaning punk music that has more than a hint of riot grrl about it. Opener, "I Can't Stay", has a wonderful 90s vibe, channeling shambolic indie rock into a focused drum driven track. The female vocals are more distant than on Adventures' previous release, but that the lyrics almost just slide in alongside the instrumentation only works to give the track a more authentic feel. Although the opener is the strongest track off the EP , the rest of the record is excellent. "Promise" is more straightforward but the vocals really shine, whilst the lyrics' convolutedness only work to make the track all the more attractive.

The second half of the EP is a little more heavy. "Clear My Head With You" is quite reminiscent of COK and closer "The Light Brings Without" is a calm, slow-paced end to a wonderfully erratic EP. With these four tracks, Adventures has consolidated itself as a legitimate band that's here to stay and, may possibly (don't shoot me) be better or at least as good as Code Orange Kids. The only danger with Adventures is the possibility that their erraticness may leave them sounding unfocused, however, right now, Adventures are one of the most exciting bands of our scene.

Recommended If You LikeCode Orange Kids; grunge-y indie punk rock with female vocals and emo touches
