teenagersintokyo

teenagersintokyo hail from Sydney, Australia, but are now based in London, UK. Their mix of dark pop has earned them a fearsome reputation, playing sell out shows with !!!, CSS, The Slits, Midnight Juggernauts and the Gossip amongst others.

teenagersintokyo hail from Sydney, Australia, but are now based in London, UK. Their mix of dark pop has earned them a fearsome reputation, playing sell out shows with !!!, CSS, The Slits, Midnight Juggernauts and the Gossip amongst others.

Last year they released their self-titled EP on Back Yard Recordings, the label responsible for finding internationally acclaimed bands Chromeo and Gossip. It was championed by Zane Lowe and the NME (who called it “peculiar and lovely”) and sold out in both Australia and the UK.

Now they’ve relocated to London and have been holed away in the Welsh mountains with Bat for Lashes producer David Kosten to record their highly anticipated, upcoming album, to be released in early 2010. But you won’t have to wait until then to hear the first fruits of that union –the double A side single ‘Isabella/ Long Walk Home’ is out on 5th October on ltd edition 7” vinyl and digital download.

Serving as a tasty, succinct refresher to the band, “Isabella” takes its cues not from their supposed contemporaries but from the storied history of offbeat punk rockers like Siouxsie and the Banshees and X-Ray Spex, producing an angular pop gem that is as insidious as it is off-kilter. “Long Walk Home”, on the other hand, is the more tender side of teenagersintokyo, with lead singer Samantha Lim purring “It’s a long walk home, and I want to walk with you” over a gently rolling landscape of shimmering synths and girl group style “oooh ooh“‘s.

To celebrate the release they produced a super limited edition t-shirt, exclusively available from the Rough Trade shop. « hide
