Forming in 2012 the trio have come a long way from their early demos and previously released Live at the Mohawk EP. Tweens (Bridget Battle on vocals and guitar, Peyton Copes on bass and Jerri Queen on drums) self titled album is a collection of new, garage-influenced tracks, produced by Eli Janney and sprinkled with some of the band’s older, doo-wop influenced favourites. The first single, ‘Be Mean’, is a biting anthem, with Battle crooning, ‘I Want You To Be Mean To Me,’ while ‘Forever’ harkens back to a girl-gang sound, this time with driving bass. The band sites Bay Area punks The Donnas, The Trashwomen and the Bobbyteens as influences – and that bubblegum badass vibe is apparent throughout the full-length – but the sound Tweens are creating is truly their own.
‘Tweens’ is released on 8th April via Frenchkiss Records.
