New York, NY (Top40 Charts) 'SEEING SHAPES' is the first single taken from 'FOREVER', the new album by Belgian indie rockers TEEN CREEPS, set for release on 22 January 2021 on [PIAS] Recordings.
One thing's for sure; TEEN CREEPS love the 1990s! The Belgian's 3 piece's sound is a high five to the fuzzy guitars, melancholic vocals and fast-paced drums of era defining bands like DINOSAUR JR, SUPERCHUNK or SONIC YOUTH.
"With 'BIRTHMARKS' Teen Creeps manage to breath new life into tired lungs without deviating too far from the blueprints that made 90s indie as visceral and cathartic as it was." (DIY Mag)
Safe to say TC's debut album (2018) pushed the right buttons. Sophomore album 'FOREVER' is gearing up to be as intense as their previous outing, but with room for more melody and a little sprinkle of pop fairy dust.
'SEEING SHAPES', the first track to whet your appetite, kicks off with the sort of fast paced guitar riffs and frantic drumming the band's known for, but it's by far their most catchy release to date.
In the accompanying video we see the trio getting ready for a show: rehearsing, checking the sound and finally playing said live show. It was filmed before the covid-pandemic hit. That makes it an unintentional testament of the importance of live music. Something we can hopefully return to sooner rather than later.
The whole video was shot on old school video cameras. The VCR quality gives the video a charm and 90s touch that suits the band and their sound.
