Adult. (note the period) is a married couple from Detroit, Michigan. They sound very experimental and can probably be described as "Electroclash". …
Most of you already know that I like ADULT., who caught my attention during that whole Electroclash thing that Ladytron was at the forefront. I noticed that ADULT. just released their fifth album, The Way Things Fall, on Ghostly International, last month (May 14th).
FADER described the album as, "wonky synth lines and smiting, deadpan vocals on their excellent return to the studio."
If you don't believe it, hear their song "Idle (Second Thoughts)":
