American quartet TEEN are currently gearing up to release their third (yes, third) album Love, Yes in February and already shared ‘All About Us’ from it. On their latest, ‘Tokyo,’ they combine metallic synths and a wobbly bassline together in a live environment – there’s no multi-tracking going on here, just raw unfiltered musical goodness.
This is what Teeny Liebersen had to say about the track: ““Tokyo” is the story of a man who loses interest in his wife and fantasizes about leaving her. His loss of interest is not merely a reflection of his feelings, but rather his unwillingness to grow old and the challenge age puts to his ego. His experience illuminates our societal obsession with youth culture and our ingrained fear of aging and loss of power. We value women only in the virgin ideal, often because they are thought to be conquerable and and a vessel for validating dominance. We would prefer to live in the fantasy of young skin rather than face our growth and relinquish control to our inevitable death.”
