“…but i wish that i’d never met a lot of the people that i’ve met
not because i don’t like them but because i only let them down
and when you disappoint everyone all the time it’s hard not to want to die
constantly i feel this weird and shameful feeling
like im being watched by a thousand glowing, vengeful eyes
behind one way mirrors in public bathrooms and in metro cars
and everywhere i go i know i’m not welcome”
(from ‘the same things happening to me all the time, even in my dreams’)
Teen Suicide – Sometimes bands just blow you away and you don’t even know why. Been listening to “I will be my own hell because there is a devil inside my body” almost the whole day and I’m really kinda fascinated. Teen Suicide is a 3-piece band from Maryland and they play a mix of lo-fi emo punk, shoegaze and garage.
As to the sound…minimal, sober, very distorted and harsh but at the same time poppy, “highly emotional” and somehow catchy and dreamy…just incredible. The whole album feels like a autumn train ride, where you staring out of the window and watch this for forever. Amazing.
My favourite songs are “dan collins vs. the maryland judicial system” and “the same things happening to me all the time, even in my dreams”. Well “grim reaper” is a highlight too.
“i said i don’t want anyone to notice me
i just wanna stay far away from anyone
i don’t wanna go anywhere with you
i’ve got so many better things that i wanna do”
Lyrically it’s hella sad and yeah the band name fits somehow very well. Sometimes it reminds me of a crude blend of American Football and Joyce Manor haha.
“i was sixteen
we drove around in your car
you were doing coke
and i said i never got a taste for it
i let something else kill my friends and my body”
Awesome stuff is awesome…so…go ahead and download, listen, share and love or do whatever you want…but don’t miss listening to “I will be my own hell because there is a devil inside my body”.
