The Stress Of Leisure - I Wanna Be Adult

The Stress Of Leisure - I Wanna Be Adult
The Stress of Leisure, like all the best bands, is a party band in the art-school mould. Imagine a Brisbane backyard full of misfits dancing and sweating their hearts out. It’s Queensland post-punk and irreverent as all hell. 4ZZZ describes the band as ‘off-kilter dancefloor filler’.

Eruption Bounce is essentially more songs about buildings, food and the internet. Like the Talking Heads there is a tension with the everyday minutiae of life. These songs are full of feeling but there’s not an earnest song amongst them. They are ready to explode, with just a thin layer of socialized behaviour holding it together: I Wanna Be Adult is a faint call of adult distress; Nice Building is a hopeless cry for positivity. There’s a yearning for optimism through all the songs.

Formed in 2006, the band has expanded from the one-man outfit of Ian Powne to a fully-fledged awesome foursome. Joining Ian on stage is the femme-attack of Pascalle Burton (keys and synth), Jane Elliott (bass) and Jessica Moore (drums).

When the legendary Dave Graney describes you as “weird and freaky in the most positive ways, joyous and gleeful, a beacon of creativity”, you know you must be doing something right.

About this track...

With a catchy 80's Devo-esque synth line starting the tune, then straight into the chorus, this is a single for sure. The rest of the band contribute guitar bass, drums and vocals with gusto to make this song rock along.
