TeenCanteen describe themselves as “cherry-cola kissed sticky-harmony indie pop” however, their new single ‘Sister’ shows a more intense side to the band.
The track commences with harsh, repetitive drumming, which is then accompanied by aggressive vocals slowly building into a harmony between several voices repeating, “every single day, I say I’m gonna go away”.
‘Sister’ is a strong, confident track, which maintains a consistent indie pop style, but also features drumming that experiments with a heavier rock based sound alongside choir-like vocals.
It is refreshing to hear a young, bold female band experimenting with different aspects of rock and pulling off a forceful and memorable track very well.
