Official Video: Lovely Bad Things - Teenage Grownups - Tape Rolls, Static and Punchy Fun

So Cal rockers the Lovely Bad Things' Official video for Teenage Grownups, the title track off their upcoming 3rd full length (via Burger Records) looks and feels like it could be off a VHS tape watched in the back of Empire Records. The tape rolls and static courtesy of director Allyson Hernandez's keen eye and decision to use vintage video tape cameras makes the time travel feel so real. While the band's 2013 The Late Great Whatever had a few punk allusions to Star Wars, Teenage Grownups pays homages to Superchunk and quite possibly Polaris.

Of course there are things that could only come from the mind of the Lovely Bad Things like a zombie head and is that a flying fried egg?? The track itself has that thick Ablini-esque 90's sound too with chunky guitars, infectious chorus, interweaving guitar lines and girl / boy vocals.

Last word is that the album drops either late this year or early next. We hope it is sooner than later! Rock on.
