"One day last year, we saw that band from Providence, the Body," says Swan. "This band is so goddamn fucking loud that you feel the music in your chest. I saw that and said I really want to start a band that has these punk elements and also has this wall-of-sound kind of feel to it, where you feel just almost overtaken by the sound."
Chris puts it another way: "We wanted to sound like Lightning Bolt and the Ramones."
The genre fuckery allows match-ups with bands like Best Coast and Wavves — whom they played with at Great Scott earlier this year — to make sense.
"On so many levels, this stuff just seems so naive," says Chris. "With Wavves, it seems like he's just this skate-punk kid; but on another level, you know this guy gets it." The same goes for Young Adults — beneath the junkpile, there's a part of them that knows exactly what they're doing. Adds Swan: "You know the guy from Wavves knows what's up because he ripped off a Wipers design for his T-shirt."
