You might recognize Lizzie Loveless as one of the members of TEEN, but she’s out on her own and teaming up with Egghunt Records to bring you her new record come this September. Personally, I love that the song seems to have two sides to it, perhaps alluding to Lizzie’s sentiment about spiraling out of control as you fall too deeply in love with someone. The front half is steady, like a darker version of the Blow, using catching rhythms and a real sleek vocal that teases you to join in the fun. Then the beat and the pace thicken, textures are added and the song spirals in a different direction, almost a meditative pop hook that’s more like a heavy 80s dance party. This is for sure a jam, and they’ll be releasing You Don’t Know in September.
This song surfaced last week, but I was actually out catching the band at hand. They played a tight little set swirling with noise and wonderful melodies. Now that I’m back in the world, I feel like Teen‘s new song needs some attention, as it was one of the hits they played during their set. Interestingly, I felt like it was a bit noisier live, but I like the group holding back here, allowing for the powerful songwriting to make it’s way through. The group has their new Carolina EP coming out your way on May 28th via Carpark Records. This is someone you should give some attention to in the upcoming weeks.
