“Pumped From Above” by Adult Jazz

Adult Jazz released their new mini-album, Earrings Off!, on May 20th via Tri-Angle and today they share a new Sam Travis directed video for “Pumped From Above” via Adult Swim. Sam Travis previously directed the videos for Adult Jazz’s “Earrings Off!” and “Eggshell.” Following their debut Gist Is, Earrings Off! finds Adult Jazz veering into more electronic territory with elasticated beats and harsh vocal experimentations riding alongside off kilter horn arrangements and treated string sounds, all shaped by the band’s inimitable and unpredictable songwriting.

Adult Jazz first appeared back in 2013, with their debut single “Springful.” Their album Gist Is followed in 2014, self-released on their label Spare Thought. Following the release of Gist Is, the band went on to play tours around Europe as well as festivals including Latitude, End of The Road, CMJ and Iceland Airwaves. The latter was attended by none other than Bjork, who was moved to write about Adult Jazz as ones to watch for Art In America Magazine. David Byrne followed suit and asked them to play at last year’s Meltdown festival with Young Marble Giants, while further endorsements came from diverse remixes by Oliver Coates, Happa and a very rare re-work from Shabazz Palaces.
