Debut 7″ by Los Angeles guitar-slangin’ indiepop up-and-comers Heathers. Heathers is the self-styled guitar pop miserablism trio of Michael Francis (guitar/vocals), Thom Lucero (bass/vocals), and Michael Wegener (drums). The band formed in Los Angeles in 2012.
“Teenage Clothes is bursting with soothing melodies, blissful guitars and catchy lyrics.” – Gold-Sounds
“Encapsulating a crunchy, distorted guitar line that shimmers and shines with glimmers of surf-rock, and gritty garage, there are also room for hints of The Smiths, which manage to sneak in midway through the track.” THIS IS FAKE DIY
“Imagine if Joy Division’s Transmission was hijacked from its gloom, pimped with a rough, jangling riff that knew The Byrds inside out and was driven by a teenage beat that crashed the cymbals into the sound booth.
That’s the slapdash pop-art pop of Teenage Clothes: punk’s energy meeting the broken-hearted crusade of 60s pop. It’s loud and it’s bright and it’s irresistible.” DID NOT CHART
