Reliably informed


Jabs Records

Released: 06.10.23








This latest release by finely seasoned indie punk specialists Adulkt Life wears its controlled rage as a badge of respectable honour, in the face of a belligerent world that requires a severe shot in the arm to let loose a long simmering barrage of righteousness.

This is a perfect echoing of the unbridled anger bubbling under an uneven surface of mendacious societal norms “it’s not the same round here like it used to be” espoused in the slow building psych punk menace that is the Art Of Boxing. Future Cops heralds an unleashing of outright incandescence, fitfully followed by the equally blazing Sleaze. Album closer Northern Translation walks amongst the rubble left in its wake “so (extra) ordinary…and so precious”.
