Describe Your Sound

The Community Chest are essentially an indie-rock band with a heavy lean on analog synths, spacious arrangements, obscure samples and Adem’s trademark catchy pop choruses and drone-rock determination.



Adem Kerimofski


Beginning as Adem's solo project, he asked Trev to back him on drums. They launched Adem's album called 'The Community Chest'. After a dozen shows they quickly assembled at team to replace their 'virtual' members. Laurie, then Pete, then Dee joined, so that by 2011 they were ready to record and play live.
