Bio

Melbourne four-piece Mr. Teenage deliver punchy rock’n’roll with pop sensibility and a whole lot of heart. Featuring brothers Nic and Joe Imfeld (vocals and bass, and lead guitar respectively) Carey Paterson (guitar) and Nadine Muller (drums), this outfit may be new but they are far from green. After an impressive 2019 debut, the band quickly garnered attention and airplay in Australia and abroad following the release of the hotly-received Neighbourhood, landing shows with The Murlocs and Lydia Lunch in quick succession. The band had a promising 2020 ahead of them with Boogie, Meadow Festival, Amyl and The Sniffers and Cosmic Psychos shows all in the pipeline. With calendars suddenly clear and 2020 pretty much in the can, the group got busy working on the release of their first EP, Automatic Love.

The announcement of their upcoming EP comes with the release of the single of the same name — Automatic Love, out on October 7.

Mr. Teenage make a strong introduction with Automatic Love. Taking inspiration from pop music and schoolyard nostalgia, the Mr. Teenage sound is at once exciting and familiar. Lead single Automatic Love lands right on this threshold, expressing adolescent urgency with adult restraint. Recorded and released in and around heavy restrictions, this ragged and confident EP captures the band’s specific sound and song-writing prowess that has been present from the get-go.

SOOO good Mr. Teenage. A daily dose of this is exactly what we all need. It's upbeat, catchy as anything, fills with great loving energy, guitars are sharp and snappy and the energy is addictive. Love this!
