The Teen Age, ‘Matador’ – Exclusive Song Premiere
In the grand Lauryn Hill tradition of doo-wop-ing things, Brooklyn band the Teen Age doo-wop garage rock — and to fantastic effect. Their debut single, ‘Ventura,’ had all the swinging, dancey vibes the average rock fan needs to get moving on the dance floor, plus enough loud, grungy guitars and shouted vocals to appeal to tattooed, tight-jeaned, possibly Devilocked punks.
Now, they’re gearing up to release their second single, ‘Matador,’ on 7-inch vinyl, and Diffuser.fm has your exclusive first listen. (Stream it below.)
Big on first names, Teen Age members Digo, Micah, Bill and John started out on a high note this past January, making their live debut at Glasslands, one of those Brooklyn venues all the cool kids play. Better still, they supported the magma-hot U.K. rockers Palma Violets, soon to be playing a string of shows with SKATERS.
Of this latest jam, Digo quips: “I guess in a way it’s a romantic take on a one night stand, but in another way, it can also be about the art of bullfighting. So I guess we can call it a one night stand about bullfighting. Though I am not sure it’s about either…”
We’ll let you decide for yourself.
