”In music, it’s a rare balance to successfully blend politics and fun, aggression with melody. Drawing on some of my fave post-punk influences and classic rock grooves, Statues debut Adult Lobotomy walks a line like Phillippe Petit across the sky between Twin Towers, gracefully subversive.”
Walter Schreifels (Quicksand, Rival Schools, Youth of Today, Gorilla Biscuits)
The indie-rock outfit Statues from Umeå, Sweden has a dense stubbornness as their musical trademark. At the same time, there is an unobtrusive security and a sense of dynamics in the group's tasteful association of tantrum noises and winding melodies.
