Yours, The – “Teenagarten” – [Maybe Mars]

who’d o’ thunk Beijing would become one of the hot spots of innovative rock music? but it’s become just that, with recent bands emulating the noise-pop/indie-rock sound from the 90s, sounding like bands like Sonic Youth, Pavement and others. these kids are from Hong Kong but fit nicely in with this scene. recorded on Beijing label Psychic Kong, The Yours’ sophomore album here is definitely meant to appeal to rambunctious youth audiences, with a much more intense and riff-heavy sound but maintaining a catchy song structures. they definitely lean heavier to the noise end than pop, but fear not, these songs shine melodic amidst the shimmering distortion and colossal dissonances. a lo-fi collage dedicated to youth culture and teenage angst.
