The North Bay’s CREATIVE ADULT are sharing their hypnotic new single “Ring Around The Room,” the title track from the quintet’s new Record Store Day exclusive EP. “Ring Around The Room” continues to expand the band’s corrosive sound, soaring to new heights while exploring the depths of blistering post-punk via layers of atmospheric influenced shoegaze, reckless noise punk, and harsh stampeding rhythms. CREATIVE ADULT vocalist Scott Phillips described the EP as an exploration of “total isolation, distorted exploration, and the acknowledgement of light in spite of how things seem on the surface” before adding “Creative Adult does not vote.”
Creative Adult are excited to share the record’s their bleak new single via The AV Club who noted the band’s post-punk pedigree, “San Francisco’s Creative Adult has had the style on lock since its inception” before calling their new single “another necessary addition to the ever-expanding history of Bay Area punk”. Due out on Record Store Day (Saturday, April 18th) via Run For Cover Records, Ring Around The Room is the follow up to the band’s exceptional full length debut Psychic Mess, picking up where they left off with a unbridled intensity. Creative Adult continue to push the envelope of post-punk into new directions on Ring Around The Room, creating an ethereal and ominous sense of danger amid dense layers of guitars, slow burning fury, and an entranced yet immovable rhythm section. Things aren’t always as they seem and the world isn’t always a sunny place.
Creative Adult is a blurry window into the world as it often appears. Formed in California’s infamous North Bay in 2012, they established themselves as a “do-as-we-wish” quartet, exploring both tradition and experimental realms with a no boundaries approach to punk rock. After a string of self released EPs on their own Broke Hatre label, as well as Boston’s Run For Cover Records, the group released their raw Efrim Menuck-produced debut LP, Psychic Mess, in early 2014. Their exclusive record store day 7″,Ring Around the Room (RFC) further pushes their anything-goes approach into new territories.
