The Teen Age at Pianos
Bands these days are pulling influences from everywhere, blending sounds so thoroughly that sometimes it's hard to identify the original ingredients. Sometimes this leads to a delicious blend of flavors like a nice smoothie, other times a fast-food horror like a McDonald's milkshake.
When I read that The Teen Age are a "doo-wop influenced garage band" I figured they might sound something like the King Khan and BBQ Show, a full-fledged retro sort of thing. The Teen Age don't go that far. At times they don't go far from the modern indie-pop sound at all, but usually they're a little more soulful, a little more passionate. Going back to drink metaphors, you might say that their old-school influences are more like a mixer than a base. They are a vital part of that particular concoction but do not define it.
While I personally love full-fledged retro bands these guys are interesting too. Supposedly they formed about six months ago so they're pretty new. Maybe they'll go full retro, maybe they'll drop the doo-wop bits from the mix, or maybe they'll keep making their own unique blend. We shall see.
