Teens emerged from Boise in late 2010. Practicing in a portioned off underground Cold War era bomb shelter outside of town, the band developed a sound that recalls mid-60’s psychedelic garage rock reminiscent of The 13th Floor Elevators or The Animals, while expanding on the current popular wave of fuzzy, garage and low-fi sounds with their own unique interpretation.

Teens was recorded with a severe lack of professional equipment, in the same underground hole mentioned above. Only two microphones, severely cramped confines, archaic tracking devices, and a ‘first-take-is usually-the-best-take’ approach, all combine to give the album an effervescent charm that would be unrealized in more posh circumstances.

Teens is rapidly developing a reputation in Boise for their live shows. If you ask one of the band members, they’ll try being humble about it and say something like, “we just go out there and play.” As one band member described the motive, “a type of reaction against being bored and having to go to work or school everyday. It’s an outlet or type of negative relief. A release.”

Teens are a group of friends. They want to go on tour and have their music heard. Teens are mapping ways to expand their sound—moving beyond the three-chord realm into spacier textures. For now, the band members are simply enjoying the opportunity to create music together.
