Formed by brothers Tom and Patrick Malone, Adam & Elvis have a new LP coming soon and trail it with “a song that deals with life’s limited duration and how the knowledge of which impacts on the human condition.”

It’s art-rock, and you sense that tongue is rarely far from the inside of the cheek. And despite the onerous nature of the subject matter, they wrap it in a danceable tune with hints of The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart. It’s typical of their taste for finding humour in the macabre and is all the better for the total contrast between melody and topic.

Through Snow And Small Talk is out on September 29 through their own Freak Power label. Follow @Adamandelvis
