Much has been made of Ceremony's ongoing sonic move away from their hardcore roots, as heard most recently on their Matador debut, Zoo, the SPIN Essential full-length that finds the Rohnert Park punks channeling Wire and the Stooges more than the power-violence of their not-too-distant youths. But on "Adult," an mpfree cut that steers toward the former, frontman Ross Farrar considers what it means to grow up and, quite possibly, out of hardcore. It's an idea that orbits the suburban cul-de-sac themes of the new, BRV BLK BRD-directed clip below, which features an ultra-saturated '50s finish.
