One of the best feelings in the world is hearing an album for the first time and knowing you’ve fallen in love. Within minutes of pressing play on Teenage Exorcists‘ self-titled EP debut that feeling overtakes you, and the good news is, it never leaves.
The band describes themselves as “raw, fuzzed out pop music with a refined sense of melody that shines through all that noise.” Aided by Mark Rains of Black Rebel Motorcycle Club the Riverside, California foursome give listeners a little of everything, from stoner snark to fuzzy romanticism (afternoons listening to Slayer?! beating heart be still). Teenage Exorcists is just a perfectly, killer introduction to the group, and it has us eagerly waiting for what’s next.
