Boston’s Young Adults is playing Great Scott this Tuesday with NYC’s Grooms and Boston’s Earthquake Party. Young Adults is Demitri Swan, Chris Villon, and Kurt Villon. They’re a loud, post-punk band with a lot of energy. They’re not a year old yet, but they’ve received a lot of attention and press from the national media and music scene.
A: Secret of the ooze.
A: Whitetail was a shoegaze band and Chris still uses his delay and reverb pedals, but now it’s just way nastier and less delicate; on some noisy caveman tip. My [Demitri’s] previous bands don’t really sound like Young Adults; Magic Magic is indie pop and Paparazzi was post-punk/post-hardcore. When it comes down to it, we’re attracted to noise, melody and punk spirit.
A: We have a insatiable appetite for music, so just about everything. When we initially conceptualized the band, we wanted have the brevity and energy of early punk bands and the sonic texture of ambient black metal [laughs]. Obviously, it’s transformed a bit, but that’s where it all started.
