Teenage Movie Soundtrack
‘Teenage Movie Soundtrack’ is an album that perfectly marries grungy angst and bubblegum pop and lends itself as much to primetime airwaves as it does to the grimy basements in which these tracks were written. The album is packed to the rafters with gargantuan choruses, sludgy guitar hooks, and boasts stellar made-for-radio melodies.
From the slushy, yet happy Weezer-esque opener ‘Loser Denial’ to the sleazy chugs of ‘Melt’ and ‘Mom Jeans’, and from the grunge-toting tracks ‘Virgin’ and ‘Happy’, right down to the more reflective sounds
of ‘Alison’ and ‘Santa Fe (Stupid Lovesong)’, the South Carolinians have produced a debut album of righteous sonic gratification, with an abundance of mucky guitars and the vocals of singer Nathan Jake
Merli sound-tracking the voice of a disheveled youth.
