adult books is the brainchild of los angeles-based writer and multi-instrumentalist nick winfrey.

with the help of childhood friends sina salessi (drums) and alex galindo (guitar/synth), winfrey crafts lyric-driven dark pop gems that recall the hook-heavy guitar work of johnny marr, the just-below-the-collar angst of mission of burma, and the doomsday bellow of early echo and the bunnymen. after a well-received string of bedroom demos and cassettes, adult books released their first full-length album, running from the blows , in 2016, trading in their previous home-recorded sounds for a cleaned-up act that allowed winfrey’s pop savvy and understated lyrical wit to shine through. two years of heavy touring followed, after which winfrey found himself both burned out and uninspired by the business of music. following a much-needed hiatus, adult books is finally ready to share their sophomore lp, grecian urn . recorded with jonny bell (crystal antlers) and mastered by dave cooley (animal collective, j dilla) , grecian urn was crafted over the course of nearly two years; however, the seeds of the album were sown more than a decade earlier. when sitting down to write grecian urn , winfrey revisited old demos, forgotten voice memos and unfinished fragments of songs to create something wholly new. the end result is a self-assured and intensely personal album that places winfrey’s evocative images and economic storytelling approach front and center. a loose concept album of sorts, grecian urn draws on classical mediterranean imagery and mythos as a means of exploring winfrey’s past traumas and struggles with chronic anxiety.
