I know With Guitars have been banging on about Teen, but ‘Better’ is a bit of a good song.
New video here from NYC’s Teen. It’s for their song ‘Better’ and taken from their debut LP ‘In Limbo’ (Carpark, 20th August), which was produced by Sonic Boom (Spacemen 3, Spectrum etc)
About the video from the girls. . . "Shot over the course of a couple of weeks this June with a handheld flip camera, the idea behind this video was to capture the energy and spirit of New York city in the summer. The carnivals, street fairs, house parties, random sightings in the city (like little kids having a chin-up contest in Times Square), the characters at the beach…We carried a camera around with us, candidly documenting ourselves and what we saw. We wanted the video to have an energetic, spontaneous, and genuine feel".
You could also think of it as a homage to New York city life, it was Shot at various locations including Times square, Long beach, Sunnyside, Ft. Tilden, Crown Heights.
