Tweens identify themselves as ‘trash pop’, yet the jackhammering guitar, tight snares and rumbling bass are unmistakably and refreshingly punk. On ‘Forever’, the 3-piece Ohio outfit have rounded out their usually jagged edges with a jangly 60’s pop hook exploring the transience of twenty-something love.  

Lead singer, Bridget Battle, yelps and yells her way through a crunchy guitar line and into our hearts. They’re definitely simmering under the surface here; justifying the hype around their debut album anticipated for an April release on indie label Frenchkiss Records. It’s a bit of a side step from their previous single ‘Be Mean’, but the riot grrrl elements in Battle’s punchy delivery are impossible to drown out in the new, sparklier tones. More than anything, Tweens have proved that they have the chameleon-qualities of any fresh, exciting band: on a whim they can be trashy, punk-y or glittering with garage pop. But they’re – thankfully – never quiet.
