Dreamy synth, high-power guitars, and a pulse-pounding rhythm section set the stage for this epic, sensual retrospective on a souring relationship, the increasingly visible cracks in its foundation, and the search for a truth that seems already discovered.
The Proper Authorities is the solo project of singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist Keith Adams. Known primarily for his work with the bands Sound Mind and Giant Wow, where he shared bills with acts like Filter, Stabbing Westward, Meat Beat Manifesto, Alien Ant Farm, Moth, Jupiter One, Lab Partners, Dink, and many more. Adams created the Proper Authorities to branch out and work on his lifelong compositional and performance skills.
As in past groups, Adams continues to experiment strongly in the modern pop rock genre with sounds and grooves that aren’t usually found there.
His appreciation for over-the-top arrangements is tempered nicely by his love for good hooks. His lyrics touch on a variety of subjects: matters of self; emotional snapshots in time; tragic and comic figures; and the things that we all want… or at least think that we want.
The Proper Authorities has released the new single ‘Perfect Alibi’.
