PREMIERE: Brush's "Teenage Time Machine" is ambivalent rock for uncertain times





PREMIERE: Brush's "Teenage Time Machine" is ambivalent rock for uncertain times

“All these plans, in God’s hands, what do they mean?” It’s with this uneasy question that New York slacker rock outfit Brush begin their new EP, Teenage Time Machine, indicative of the cautious worldview the band embodies over the course of the releases’s five tunes. Trudging drum beats, melodic, gain-heavy guitar lines, and a slack-jawed vocal delivery immediately conjure associations with 90s genre progenitors such as Pavement and Silver Jews, but Brush carve out a space of their own through of-the-times lyricism that embodies our contemporary cultural zeitgeist. They’re equally comfortable posing existential quandaries as they are reminiscing on love and life, pivoting from the uncertain queries of title track opener “Teenage Time Machine” to sunny, melodic riffs on tracks like “Brian” and closer “Chelsea,” a feedback-heavy drive that concludes this extended play on a high note. Regardless of Brush’s ambivalence about the present, they won’t hesitate to describe things as they see them, marching confidently into an unwritten and terrifying future; it is that sincerity that will define Teenage Time Machine as one of 2019’s standout local releases. Stream the EP here, and watch their new music video below. —Connor Beckett McInerney
