Nipaluna/Hobart band TEENS have just released a pounding, throbbing slice of visceral rock in their new single ‘Burning Bridges’ An ambulant almost filthy funk bass throbs it’s way throughout the track – a long introductory instrumental build up creates a sense of anticipation before the songs launches with its distant vocals and slamming pace.

Guitars rumble like out of control concrete mixers, flinging out howls of anguish in the midst of the controlled chaos that permeates the track. Angular, anarchic and, above all, thrilling stuff from a band that is carving out its own unique sound:

‘Burning Bridges’ is out today, with a launch show set for Saturday, 8 June at Altar, where
TEENS will be joined by Nice House, Legal Noise, and Morality Trope. TEENS have also been
named on DZ Deathrays’ upcoming national ‘Black Rat’ 20th anniversary tour, scoring a support slot at the Hobart gig on 12 July along with another Backseat Mafia favourite, A. Swayze & The Ghosts.

TEENS’ debut full length album and first vinyl release is due on 5 July via No Sleep Records, with
pre-orders available now through the link below. Written between 2020 and 2022 in a practice room at the Royal Hobart Showgrounds, the record’s conception was juxtaposed with the tragic circumstances of
folks forced to reside in tents and caravans within the same facility, as a direct consequence of the region’s housing crisis.
