Pity Sex and Adventures have teamed up to make their long-anticipated split EP one of the yearÍs most interesting releases. Adventures leads off the a-side with ñFlowing Through,î a slow-burning emo anthem highlighted by the honest, cathartic refrain: ñIÍve been pretending to have a grasp on solid groundî. Pity SexÍs ñAcid Reflexî is another fuzzy indie pop gem in the bandÍs small but impressive catalog. The call and response verses sung by guitarists Brennan Greaves and Britty Drake make the track an easy sing-along, but lyrics like ñI need drugs, I need God, I need comfort,î show that the Michigan quartet is still dealing with plenty of demons. Each band also offers a cover on the split: Adventures takes on the hardcore classic ñBehind This Wallî by Turning Point with all the aggression of the original, and Pity Sex offers their fantastic rendition of the PixiesÍ classic, ñGiganticî.
