Lovely Bad Things ready ‘Teenage Grownups’ (watch the title track video), touring with Diarrhea Planet
California's Lovely Bad Things will release Teenage Grownups in 2017 via Burger Records. You don't have to wait to hear the LP's title track, though, it's out now -- a super-catchy, snotty rocker -- and we've got the premiere of its Allyson Hernandez-directed video. For more on the song and video, the band provided us with this:
If you are or have ever been a directionless 20-something teetering on
the cusp of an existential crisis, Teenage Grownups-- the infectious
first single off the new Lovely Bad Things album of the same name-- is
your next new escape from crushing reality. The song encapsulates the
universal feeling of not knowing which way is up when you're trying to
find yourself, all wrapped up nicely in a hook-driven, power pop
package. Like a high school crush you never quite got over, Teenage
Grownups pulls at your heartstrings by mixing sentimental sincerity
with a rush of playful nostalgia. Expect instrumental nods to bands
like Pavement and Dinosaur Jr., placed alongside vocal arrangements
and melodies that are uniquely Lovely Bad Things.
Watch the video below.
