Listen: The Teen Age Reveal New ‘Second Youth’ Track

DIY has the first play of the Brooklyn band’s new, frustration-filled song.

For all your Parquet Courts and your Merchandise's, you’re bound to have a whole onslaught of lesser-known groups bubbling up underneath all the attention being diverted towards the US’ respective punk movements. Based in Brooklyn, The Teen Age are another group who practice in their basements day in day out and every so often emerge with a defining track.

‘Second Youth’ is their latest track. Premiering on DIY, the song was recorded at the Silent Barn in Bushwick, produced by members of the group Ava Luna and mixed by Shane O’Connor. Intense waves of fuzz oversee a hook-filled, vibrant song. For all the intentionally harsh production value, there’s a real career-defining idea bursting within.

Micah of the band told DIY, of the track: ”Second Youth’ is about the fear of growing old. We wrote the chorus as a sort of therapy session. The days go by so fast and yearning for more time keeps us up at night.’

This fear of age presents itself in the frustrated, rough-edged style of the song. Every inch of being throws itself emotionally into ‘Second Youth’. The Teen Age appear to possess an obsession with youth. It runs through their track names, their band name and the songs themselves. But every obsession wields something remarkable.
