Melbourne four-piece Mr. Teenage appeared for the first time ever on 'Rage' on the weekend with their first video. "Automatic Love" is the title track from their acclaimed debut Ep, which was released on 7" and digitally late last year.
Mr. Teenage deliver deliver punchy rock'n'roll with pop sensibility and a whole lot of heart. Featuring brothers Nic and Joe Imfeld (vocals and bass, and lead guitar respectively) Carey Paterson (guitar) and Nadine Muller (drums), this outfit may be new but they are far from green.
After an impressive late 2019 debut, the band quickly garnered attention and airplay in Australia and abroad for the Bandcamp release of a demo of the song Neighbourhood. The track prompted Bandcamp to feature the group in their NEW & NOTABLE section and describe the song as "A banging feel-good garage-rock song." Shows with The Murlocs, Lydia Lunch, Civic, the Girlatones and others followed in quick succession, and the band had a promising 2020 ahead of them with Boogie, Meadow Festival, Amyl and The Sniffers and Cosmic Psychos shows all in the pipeline. With calendars suddenly clear and 2020 pretty much in the can, the group got busy working on the release of their first record, which was recorded for them by Anti-Fade Records' Billy Gardener.
