I’m biased where LA band Adamandevil are concerned: I stayed for a month or so this spring in the vast Los Angeles house where the band often write & practice, so I heard their extremely addictive music morning noon & night, as well as at their gigs. Sure the boys are good friends of mine, (I’ve known Julian since high school), but I can’t recommend their very particular brand of highly charged electro indie pop highly enough.
They are no amateur production: after 3 years of touring the world with seminal London band Whitey and co-writing tracks for the second album (including Wrap it Up which has been heard on The OC, House, and Grand Theft Auto IV) the boys decided to go out on their own, forming Adamandevil together after they had both decided separately to move to America’s West Coast in 2007.
Altho they both have solo projects (more of this later), they are currently mixing Adamandevil’s self-produced debut album with Danny Saber (David Bowie/Rolling Stones/Black Sabbath/Marilyn Manson), & are celebrating with a free show at the Key club in Hollywood this Wednesday, the 14th, from 9pm.
