The band's second single for 2020.
Known for their immersive live performances and rich, reminiscent melodies, Mornington Peninsula outfit Teenage Dads have once again swept us off our feet with their latest release ‘Thank You for the Honey, Honey’, scheduled to drop tomorrow, September 24.
Right from the get-go, Teenage Dads draw you in with their trademark indie-pop sound that we all know and love on this track, championed by an exciting mixture of thumping drums and distinguishable fuzz that shows the band are here for a good time and a long time. The fuzzy lead vocals from Jordan sit pretty at the forefront of the track with an infectious melody that you’ll have in your head long after the song’s finished.
Pulling together for three minutes and 34 seconds of thundering and irresistible pop-rock hooks, the single delves into the fears of not feeling fulfilled in life and those feelings of being deserted by someone close to you, inspired by ABBA’s ‘Honey, Honey’.
“It’s about being left in the lurch by someone and the struggles of coping with that, and that while you’re thankful for ‘the honey’, you fear the prospect of living an unfulfilling life,” explains drummer Vincent.
Self-produced, recorded and mixed by the band, their latest track blends upbeat pop-rock with shoegaze and dream-pop influences, taking cues from Phoenix and The Strokes, with a couple of cheeky nods to the likes of The Beach Boys with those catchy and upbeat pop and rock melodies.
Adept in combining a variety of musical elements from international acts and continuously delivering immense energy and good vibes on the stage, music fans have been keeping a keen eye on the Victorian band over the last few years.
Having already performed at an array of festivals and supported the likes of Psychedelic Porn Crumpets, Ruby Fields, Northeast Party House and Lime Cordiale, this latest track is just further indication that their presence within the scene will bolster from here on out.
