If you’ve heard anything about TEEN CREEPS, it’s that the Belgian three piece loves the 1990s. Their sound is reminiscent of bands that era, like DINOSAUR JR, SUPERCHUNK or SONIC YOUTH with fuzzy guitars, melancholic vocals and fast- paced drums. That combo hit home on their 2018 debut BIRTHMARKS, that garnered interest from UK press outings like Upset Magazine, DIY Mag, Clash Music and GoldFlakePaint. Even getting some four stare reviews. But on ‘FOREVER’ they do not simply repeat the formula.
The fuzzy guitars and angsty lyrics are still here on ‘FOREVER’. But TEEN CREEPS are okay with slowing down, letting in some more melody and overall maturing their sound. Closing track ‘CRASH/LAND’ is the closest they’ll ever get to a ballad and their longest track yet. ‘DEFENDER’, ‘TOUGHEN UP’ and ‘BROTHERS’ also let in the feels and turn down the pace.
‘Forever’ could be lifted straight from the catalogue of ‘The Greatest Indie Guitar Albums Of The 90’s’ - **** thepunksite.com
