Bio

The Prevues play indie pop with jagged guitars, rolling drum beats and cave dwelling harmonies intertwined together. The Prevues sound shows glimpses of The Strokes and Television but they also have slower, darker ballads comparable to Girls. The real stand out for The band is their ability to blend a range of influences across the decades of indie rock without being pigeonholed into one type of sound. Since forming in 2011 The Prevues have been working hard both on and off stage honing their brand of indie pop. In their short history they have played alongside some of Perth’s top indie bands including The Autumn Isles, The Morning Night and Rainy Day Women. X-press Magazine - "The Prevues are great at appropriating sounds from the past but even better at stitching them together into something that sounds hard to place: catchy-as-hell new single, Teenage Love contains a little Elvis Costello-style pep, a little Girls-inspired surf-rock guitar and a Best Coast-esque sugary melody that climbs up the ladder and then scratches the itch by climbing back down, throwing down some tinkling tambourine and reverby guitars along the way."

This song is really catchy. It makes me want to dance every time I hear it. I love the Strokes / Kooks vibe!

This is my favorite Prevues song. It's so laid back and catchy. It reminds me of Group Love in a way

Catchy song. Good hook in chorus and I love the end part! Definitely makes me reminisce on my teenage years
