A Melbourne-based experimental electronic duo compromising of Matthew Kopp (Running Touch) and Zac Waters, Adult Art Club is an all-encompassing project. Blurring the lines between art, music, and fashion, the project is aimed at directly supporting and promoting local artists and designers, and Adult Art Club are set to create a holistic model of combining the arts community and the music community through tight-knit creative collaborations, kicking off with the first single on this journey, the unifying 'All Together, Here Together'.
Balanced with warm piano melodies, pulsating beats and infectious house flavour, this latest single was written as an ode to legendary Melbourne-based visual artist, House Arrest (aka Jaime Brohier), who can be seen in the official music creating a piece that inspired the single’s artwork. Intentionally collaborative and immersive, ‘All Together, Here Together’ reflects Adult Art Club’s desire to draw the line between music, art and fashion and in doing so, curating a central universe for all disciplines to flourish in unison.
Speaking about the new single, Adult Art Club explained, “’All Together, Here Together’ is named after our single artwork from House Arrest, but in a truer sense Jaime’s style. It’s a celebration of fusion in that this song marked the birth of us being able to fuse our heavier work with the lighter. The end of the full circle being the main sample from the Running Touch song ‘Come With Me’. The lyrics ‘All Together, Here Together’ preface this collection of songs and art to come and within this song all mine and Zac’s signatures in best form.”
Citing acts like Jamie XX, Gorillaz and The Prodigy, Adult Art Club sits on a spectrum that flows through light and dark shades. Gritty and raw, the soundscape is primed for darkened rooms, industrial lots and derelict buildings, having appeared at secret basement events, hidden festivals sets and an inaugural live stream from an airport hangar, as well as the stages of Splendour In The Grass’ infamous Tunnel Party, Beyond The Valley, Seaworks, Untitled Day Party and two sold out headline shows at Colour Club (Melbourne).
While continuously having sold out crowds vibrating to their dark minimalism, during a time where the future of mass gathering felt eerily uncertain, Adult Art Club was and continues to be the reprieve to take you into a sweaty, heaving dance floor.
