Bio

Breaking away from the power-pop style from their latest release, 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 have finally released their debut as a four piece with their new single "I Like That You Like That", which shows off their 90's alt-rock-era influences and is a housewarming for their new sound.

Formed in 2015, 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, Northeast Party House, RAAVE TAPES, Alex Lahey, Press Club and Spiderbait. The gang are also about to support Slowly Slowly on their national tour.

The 90’s grunge influenced band have also scooped up the opening slot on the Triple j stage for Canberra Groovin The Moo 2019, as well as already performing at St Jerome’s Laneway Festival Sydney this year.

Teen Jesus and the Jean Teasers have started their 2019 off with a bang, and have only more in store in the coming months; their new single being only the beginning.

A big winner here. It fills your ears. It's edgy, confident and barges it's way through (but in a sweet way).

one of those songs that totally consumes you. like swallows you up, takes you to a world only the band can access and thoroughly shakes you.

Last time I heard TJATJ they were still balancing school and their burgeoning momentum as a band. To come back with this track is hugely impressive. There's a dark, menacing feel to this track. Like Canberra just supplanted Berlin as the wintry post-punk capital of the world.
