Here’s an EP that could’ve made my 50 favorite short-format releases of 2021 if it was released a little bit earlier. Angry Adults are a three-piece from Helsinki (Finland), and Obsessed (With You) is the follow-up to the band’s 2019 full length Back To School. That record was more old school fast paced ramonescore reminiscent of The Vindicitives. On Obsessed (With You).
Angry Adults have retained that element of their sound, most prominently on opener I’m Jealous Again and on I’m Alright. For me, however, the standout tracks on this EP are where the band slightly takes the foot of the gaspedal, and opts for the melody and dynamics of powerpop garagerock – listen below. Obsessed (With You) is out now on 7″.
