ADRIAN AARDVARK - 04/21/18

"Plattsburgh, New York 4-piece, Adrian Aardvark, offers a unique brand of rock and roll that is highly energetic, completed with costumes, theatrics, introspective lyrics, and solid grooves.
Dying Optimistically embraces unequivocal passion in an ongoing search for good in the human condition. In the sprightly backdrop of Adrian Aardvark’s songscape, the group strives to atone with the world at large.
Imagine the chaotic energy of The Cramps counterbalanced by the emotive fragility of Daniel Johnston -- battles against anxiety, depression, and sexual identity are contrasted by explorations of romantic love and acceptance of the self, amplified in a wall of energy.
Lush string arrangements, enticing drumming, and anthemic vocals showcase the collaborators’ creative dynamism. The bizarre and loving beauty of this record is visually supplemented by Jon Vermilyea’s surreal album artwork.
Epifo Music will release Dying Optimistically on Friday, April 20, 2018 digitally and on CD. A limited edition vinyl edition will be available online via Bandcamp, adrianaardvark.com, and at Adrian Aardvark’s energetic concerts. "
