Adult Jazz - So Sorry So Slow

Adult Jazz bring a blossoming, frenetic darkness to Dinked No. 287.

London-based four-piece Adult Jazz announce their first full-length album in a decade, So Sorry So Slow. Containing some of the band’s most abrasive but gentle, beautiful and melismatic work to date, the album has many defining characteristics: romance, panic, devotion and remorse, threaded together by an intentionally laser-focused love. It’s deeply personal, bruised and candid in its expressions of tenderness, and deeply pained in its concurrent reflections of ecological regret.

+ Dinked Edition No.287 on Ochre & Black Yolk vinyl w/ exclusive CD and art print. 

Across its hour-long runtime, a delicate, frenetic energy and glacial heaviness coexist, the band pitting those paces against one another. In their richly experimental timbre, dancing strings and fluttering falsettos prang against a bed of brass drones like a wounded bird. Sonically, there are sparks of the arrhythmic brightness that afforded the band’s critically acclaimed debut album Gist Is its cult adoration, for fans of Arthur Russell and Meredith Monk, but with a blossoming, melancholic darkness often overhead. Piano sprees and luscious string sections appear like low-hanging stars on a night-time drive, whilst plunging vocal distortions and humming brass loops resurrect heavy limbs in a bad dream.
