Bleeding Knees Club - Teenage Girls
Aussie punks Bleeding Knees Club aren’t doing much different from a lot of other bands and in many ways their unoriginality makes them likeable. Music isn’t always about reinventing the wheel and besides this band are a cross between The Beach Boys and The Ramones, accurately covering the tricky topic of girls and feelings, which is hardly a bad thing. ‘Teenage Girls’ is a blink and you’ll miss it 2 minute corker and the perfect song to make you wish you were on the beach in the middle of summer (kind of a shame it’s winter right now). Beginning with a tantalising guitar solo, it dives in immediately with lead singer Alex Wall’s almost nasal vocals taking centre stage and it doesn’t look back. Touted as the next Wavves, Bleeding Knees Club are definitely ones to watch next year.
