The Teen Age Express Adolescent Malaise in ‘Low Cunning’

The Teen Age

The Teen Age‘s new single fittingly reeks of adolescent angst and rebellion — in a good way. In “Low Cunning,” the Brooklyn band show off a blend of lo-fi punk, sounding similar to the Black Lips with a bit more influence from ’50s rock n’ roll. Growling lead vocals drone, “I got hit by a train and there’s blood soaked in my clothes / And now I can’t go to sleep because I did too much Adderall,” over a hyper fuzz of electric riffs and percussive scruff. Despite those cloying millennial Holden Caulfield-isms, the Teen Age have delivered a well-crafted and addictive track – a contagious paradox.
