Driver, the third studio album from Adult Mom, is out now via Epitaph Records.
“This record has been years in the making, not only recording and production-wise, but emotionally as well,” says Knipe. “I can never be on the other side, above the trees, looking at my music with fresh eyes and ears, but I am the proudest I have ever been. This record is about agency, control, and the connections to yourself that you can make while you put yourself back together.”
Co-produced by Stevie Knipe and Kyle Pulley (Shamir, Diet Cig, Kississippi), Driver sees Knipe delve into the emotional space just beyond a coming-of-age, where the bills start to pile up and memories of college dorms are closer than those of high school parking lots. Ultimately seeking the answer to the age-old question posed by every twenty-something; what now?
Over the course of 10 tracks, Knipe sets out to soundtrack the queer rom-com they’ve been dreaming of since 2015. Driver incorporates an expert weaving of sonic textures ranging from synths and shakers to ‘00s-inspired guitar tones which convey a loving attention to detail. Lyrically, Knipe radiates an unmistakable honesty mixed with a level of wit and a sense of humor producing intimate yet relatable indie-pop songs.
