The last couple of years have been monumental resume-builders for Teen Jesus and the Jean Teasers; selling out a headliner at the famed Corner Hotel, invitations to some of the country’s biggest festivals and landing in triple j’s Hottest 200 with the cracking ‘AHHHH!’ being just the beginning.
With these career wins and a few more birthdays under each of the Teenie Jeanies’ belts comes a collective sense of self-assuredness for Anna, Scarlett, Jaida and Neve. It’s a resolve not born of ego or entitlement, but of the coming-of-age they’ve experienced and a healthy confidence in the work they have put in to get where they are. But, as their upcoming EP Pretty Good For A Girl Band will attest, it’s come in the face of being undeservedly underestimated.
From comments of “you’re the best chick band I’ve seen” and “do you need help with your amp, darl?” to unsolicited waist-grabs, PGFAGB speaks to the sentiments that underpin the non-male experience both inside the music industry and outside.Teen Jesus And The Jean Teasers have recently announced a national tour in support of their forthcoming debut album, I Love You, sharing the news alongside a jaunty new single called I Used To Be Fun.
