POZ Review: Adventures, Run Forever - Split

by Zack Zarrillo - Feb 20, 2014

by Adrienne Fisher, edited by Erik van Rheenen

Adventures and Run, Forever have been fairly exempt from the hustle and bustle of the “Emo Revival” coverage, probably because they don’t offer much in the way of inherent lightheartedness or charming it’ll-all-be-okay avowals (in neither music nor marketing initiatives). Rather, these two down-in-the-dirt indiemo bands from Pittsburgh emulate in their own music a lot of what gives the Steel City its character – de-glamorized, gritty, disinterested with popularizing itself on the coattails of overrated trends. But if you’re willing to travel far enough west, you’ll discover plenty of intrigue and talent. Running only 4 songs for a sprint just under 10 minutes long, the split is but a fingerprint to represent the artistic body of each band, but as the songs sit together adjacent, it’s hard to miss that they’re coming from very similar places, both in production styles and attitude.

However, despite any endorsements from the success of their day jobs in Code Orange Kids, the Adventures side of the split falls short of the EPs they’ve put out in the past. The structures are choppy and largely feel unfinished – like you’ve walked into a room a minute or so after the needle has already dropped on the record. “Call Me at Night” and “Thin” play through in parts, disjointed at the foundation but smeared over with blaring guitars and indistinct vocals. It’s clear the band is fairly established in their blurry, melodic style, but you’re left scrambling to figure out the cipher in four minutes of music and before you know it, before you can make sense of all the moving parts, the songs are over and you can’t quite place what about it stood out to you. While the technical musicianship has clearly advanced from past releases and the parts are all enticing in their own right, the songwriting on this split abandons any symmetry in song structure. And while that doesn’t necessarily denote a misdirected effort, these songs present together more of an erratic, messy catharsis than a focused set – sometimes, just having substance and the promise of talent isn’t enough to pull it together.
