Self-proclaimed “doo-wop garage” band The Teen Age excels at concealing slightly darker themes in layers of pop melodies and fuzz.
Around for just over two years, The Teen Age has spun out a handful of releases and videos, mostly drawing on experience for content. Whether it be getting over a breakup, a love affair with liquor or getting 86’d from of a bar, most teens-to-thirty-somethings in New York can relate.
With even the best intentions, it can be hard to stay out of trouble. Apparently these boys can’t even have a pizza party without ending up battered and bruised.
