Bio

Teen Jesus and the Jean Teasers rapidly built up a name for themselves throughout Canberra after coming through Triple j Unearthed High. Not soon thereafter, the girls began playing alongside acts such as Polish Club, Bleeding Knees Club, Northeast Party House, Alex Lahey, Press Club, Spiderbait, Good Doogs and are set to support Slowly Slowly on their national tour in July and August. The 90’s grunge-influenced band have also scooped up Spilt Milk 2019 and Stonefest slots, as well as already performing at Canberra Groovin The Moo, and St Jerome’s Laneway Festival Sydney this year.

Breaking away from the power-pop style from their latest EP, Teen Jesus and the Jean Teasers are growing up; and so is their sound. After taking a break in 2018 to finish up their schooling, the girls released their new single as a 4 piece band “I Like That You Like That” influenced by the 90’s alt-rock era. Following is their newest release - “See You In A Bit (I Still Care)”, a song that reflects on love-hate relationships with the same gritty grunge style.

Such a strong track, using the venom of post punk and the catchiness of 90s alt-rock. Only 27 days til I get to see TJ&tJT live.

Another confident track from this Canberra band who mix darkness and drama with aplomb. Aplomb's a weird word, hey? Good song tho.
