Post Adolescence is no newcomer to the scene, since their last album ‘My Nothing’ they’ve been deliciously perfecting their angst-ridden Brit-Pop/Rock riffs, in their Glam-a-tron bunker high on Beacon Hill.
With a sound that’s been described as, “Placebo and Bowie run into Jack the Ripper on Carnaby Street”, Post Adolescence decadently delivers smart, thought provoking, yet sometimes controversial subject matter infused with a lush Brit-Pop/Post-Punk/Glam, the proverbial ‘spoonful of sugar to help the medicine go down’ if you will, with an “I don’t give a rip” attitude.
Lead Singer/Guitarist Johnny Straube’s songs are shaped by experience. His tall, sinuous, sultry good looks and mercurial falsetto seamlessly combine with his serious writing chops. Straube has a way of adding gloss to the uncomfortable and you’ll find yourself bopping and singing along without realizing you just danced your ass off to a song decrying anti-intellectualism. With equal parts apathy, remorse, sarcasm, and revenge, the Post Adolescence sound could be likened to Hard Rock with an arena sheen.
Backed by a solid band of Rock veterans, Brian McCrossen-Drums, Adrian Garver-Guitar/Keys, and newest member, Siobhan McCloskey Bass/Vox, Post Adolescence have captured a UK essence drawing from the 80‘s and 90’s yet with a style uniquely their own, twisting Pop hooks like a cyclone hitting a picket fence.
The 7-track EP ‘Goodbye from the Future’, is a final word to all the relationships from past songs, a message that writer Straube said won’t occupy his thoughts anymore. “It’s about moving on. This is my Empire Strikes Back!” The album was recorded and mixed at Soul Kitchen Studios, Seattle by Engineer-Mark Clem and Mastered by Steve Turnidge, ARS Divina, Seattle
