PREMIERE: Teenage Joans confirm they are one to watch with epic new single and video for ‘Something About Being Sixteen’
Adelaide two-piece Teenage Joans have had a very exciting past few months indeed. From taking out triple j Unearthed’s Unearthed High comp in 2020 to sharing stages with the likes of Ruby Fields, The Hard Aches, Clowns, Towns and Bec Stevens and taking out the “South Australian Best Live Act” in the 2019 National Live Music Awards, their list of accolades continues to grow with each and every move. Fast forward to 2021 and they’re kicking the year off with a bang thanks to two co-headline shows with TOWNS in Melbourne and Brisbane as well as slots booked for Summer Sounds and TEENAGE KICKS festivals, and now they’re going one step further with the release of a rip-roaring new anthem and video.
Titled ‘Something About Being Sixteen’, the new single from Teenage Joans is a gripping, anthemic and emotional slice of classic rock, all about the emotional turmoil of holding on to a person that shouldn’t be held on to. With catchy riffs, soaring hooks and infectious melodies, the duo let it rip from start to finish to make a song that is equally emotional and relatable as it is cathartic and fun to listen to. Released alongside a fittingly epically fun video which we are thrilled to premiere today on Purple Sneakers, ‘Something About Being Sixteen’ is all the proof you need to realise Teenage Joans are superstars in waiting.
The band said of their new single, “‘Something About Being Sixteen’ is undoubtedly Teenage Joans‘ great take on the classic coming of age rock tune, generally closing our live sets with audiences singing along every time without fail.”
With a focus on making music that is real, important and unapologetic, it’s no wonder that Teenage Joans are being tipped as a serious one to watch this year. Check out ‘Something About Being Sixteen’ below:
