The Teen Age plays Rough Trade tonight (03.31) and tomorrow (04.01)

The Teen Age plays Rough Trade tonight (03.31) and tomorrow (04.01)

Even though The Teen Age's recently released EP 'Bad Seed' was written as an “ode to growing older,” single “Backwards” feels emotionally rooted in the now. Under the production eye of Jason Finkel at Converse Rubber Tracks studios, the band makes the most out of immediately catchy guitar riffs and a joyously propulsive rhythm. While the verses may bring to mind early days of The Strokes, the chorus serves to elevate the track into an instant classic.  With its pairing of a guitar line melody with the vocal hook “I don’t want to live without you – I just keep on falling backwards,” the song is bound to woo fans of the heart-tugging surf-pop of Beach Fossils. This week the garagey quartet is playing two consecutive nights at Rough Trade: the first show is tonight (03.31) with Slaves,  the second one tomorrow (4/1) with two other Deli NYC favorites Celestial Shore and Monogold. - Dave Cromwell
