"...a highly collaborative record that is richer and stranger than anything they've done before...electrifying." – PITCHFORK

"a vigorously unsettling collaborative album that plays to their strengths....suffused with a volatility and uneasiness that are ADULT. signatures." – ASSOCIATED PRESS

"Not many bands make their best album nearly 20 years into their career, but Adult. have done just that with Detroit House Guests." – THE STRANGER

ADULT. (Detroit’s Nicola Kuperus and Adam Lee Miller) have released a new video for “Uncomfortable Positions,” featuring Japanese-born, LA-based multidisciplinary artist Lun*na Menoh. Watch it here.

Lun*na Menoh, whose work deals with "fashion, clothing and exposing the invisible thread between performance and fabric,” and Nicola Kuperus recorded the video in one take – both blindfolded, manipulating a sewing machine hooked up to effects pedals.

Further information about a piece of Lun*na Menoh’s work owned by the V&A can be read here.

“Uncomfortable Positions” is taken from the band’s latest album, Detroit House Guests, a project conceived by ADULT. based on the visual artist residency model. Each musician came to ADULT.’s studio for a three week period with the parameter that they all live, work and collaborate together. The result - a total anthropological sound experiment and a full length album.

The album features collaborations with a whole host of musicians and artists – Douglas J McCarthy from Nitzer Ebb, Michael Gira from Swans, Shannon Funchess from Light Asylum, Robert Aiki Aubrey Lowe aka Lichens, Austrian thereminist Dorit Chrysler and Lun*na Menoh.

Kuperus and Miller also make sculpture, paintings, films, photographs, performances, videos and installations. They strive to intersect the lines between art and audio and have exhibited their work at institutions such as the Austrian Cultural Forum (NY), Mattress Factory (Pittsburgh), Detroit Institute of Arts (Detroit), MOMAS (Saitama, Japan), and Centre d'art Contemporain de Meymac (FR). They have shown their film The Three Grace(s) triptych at spaces such as Anthology Film Archives (NY), Distrital Film Festival (Mexico City), and Grey Area for Art and Technology (SF).
