Following its First Play on triple j Good Nights, rising Australian punk stars Teen Jesus and the Jean Teasers have unleashed a brand new single Miss Your Birthday, alongside the announce of a headline single tour slated for February 2022.
Co-written with Alex Lahey and produced by Violent Soho’s James Tidswell, Miss Your Birthday is a slice of instantly-memorable alt-rock, and proof yet again that Teen Jesus and the Jean Teasers are an absolute must-watch rising act. Packing a punch both musically and thematically, Miss Your Birthday touches on the idea of being comfortable in your parents’ home yet yearning for freedom out of home.
TJJT guitarist Scarlett McKahey says:
“’Miss Your Birthday’ was written during the first COVID lockdown, when I was staying in Melbourne and really homesick. I wrote it with Alex Lahey (which was an absolute dream) and we wanted to write something relatable, referencing share house couches and dirty bathrooms. It’s about the internal battle of wanting to be back at your Mum’s cosy house without abandoning your new “grown up” life. Sometimes going home is the only option!”
It comes after a stellar reception to the group’s recent release AHHHH! and signing to Domestic La La, the label home of fellow Australian rock favourites including Dear Seattle, LOSER and West Thebarton and fellow rising stars in The Terrys and Divers.
Since its release in July, AHHHH! has garnered over 550,000 streams, while it snared full rotation on both triple j and triple j Unearthed and landed the band on the cover of leading playlists including Local Noise and Fresh Finds.
