Premiere

Adult Mom – “Drive Me Home” Video

In a couple of weeks, Band To Watch Adult Mom will release their sophomore album, Soft Spots. We’ve already heard “Full Screen” and “Tenderness,” and today we’re premiering a video for another new track, “Drive Me Home.” Stephanie Knipe recorded it on their phone while walking through their childhood home and their grandmother’s house, and it flashes through memories in soft black-and-white before crystallizing into full color towards the end.

The song itself is warm and graceful, even though its detailing messy emotions that are the exact opposite. It’s a desperate plea for escapism and a search for resolution in a crisis of identity, wondering how perfect you have to be in order to be at peace with yourself. The answer is, unfortunately, never perfect enough, but Knipe leans on another to provide support. “If I am good, if I am really fucking good, will you please take me home?” they request towards the end of the song. “Validate me, and create the space I can’t make.” Watch and listen below.
