Brooklyn quartet, The Teen Age, have announced their debut EP, Ways To Adapt, will arrive on June 3 via PaperCup Music, and have premiered a video for the first single off the record, “Sleep Alone”. Directed by Stephen Venezia and Dan Giraldo of Nimblefox Productions, whose credits, the video features vocalist/guitarist Matt Degorio doing his best, or worst, to try and never have to sleep alone. Featuring four new songs, singer/guitarist Degorio, said of the tunes, “All the songs on the EP grew out of a certain emptiness I had after a bad breakup, and how I tried to cope and adapt through different vices.” Ways To Adapt was recorded at Madpan Studios in New York with Producer Uri Djemal.
Formed in a Brooklyn basement in late 2012, The Teen Age plays a mix of ’70s inspired punk and garage rock. The group made their live debut in January of last year, supporting Palma Violets. Their debut single, “Ventura”, was recorded at the Converse Rubber Tracks Studio in Williamsburg, Brooklyn and released via PaperCup Music. “Ventura” showcased the band’s particular brand of “Doo-Wop Garage” featuring reverb-drenched guitars and a sing-along ready chorus. The band followed up with the “Matador” 7″ single in October.
