Bio

Formed in 2017, the alt-poppers Teenage Dads combine the colour and warmth of the 60's with a grand theatrical feel, pushed with temperate synthesisers and rich melodies. The chemical madness and sporadic sounds within their writing are drawn from a wide range of artists, including King Krule, The Beach Boys, The Strokes and George Harrison.

Recently touring with Lime Cordiale around Australia in 2019, their kinetic and righteous live shows have propelled the band to performing alongside the likes of Psychedelic Porn Crumpets, Ruby Fields, Kingswood, Northeast Party House, Approachable Members of Your Local Community and The Montreals.

Writing, recording and producing their music from home, the band released their debut EP Wett Weather in 2017, followed by the release of their debut album Potpourri Lake in 2018 and Red EP in 2019. Pocket Money, their final single for the year, released on December 16th, 2019.

Having performed at St Kilda Festival in February, 2020 will also see the release of their latest single Adrenaline Rush, coming February 20th. Teenage Dads have just announced 'The Antics Roadshow', a co-headline tour of Australia with their friends The Moving Stills throughout March and April.

it's a mix of king gizz, rolling blackouts and beach boys and i'm pretty keen never to return from this 60s throwback.

Teenage Dads bringing their slinky, delirious and unstoppable groove with a bit of mystery and curiosity. That guitar hook is impossible to get out of the mind too. Nice one legends!
