Teen Suicide

Teen Suicide were a four-piece punk/indie/emo/pop/noise/lots of stuff band from Maryland that existed for a very short time, from 2011-2012. Despite their brief tenure, the band managed to keep busy by putting a ton of music, and some amazing music at that. The band's sound can certainly be described as being "lo-fi", which is pretty much the only completely consistent thing the band does. This is with the exception of being incredibly depressing and self-deprecating, of course. They seem to inject heavy doses of that into each song.  Besides that, a multitude of ideas are explored, practically from song to song. They take influence from a plethora of sources which keep them constantly varied and interesting. I guess they do have quite a few songs that have a similar thing going on to Wavves, but in super-sad form. Some Daniel Johnston influence often seems to seep through a few times as well. I guess I could just keep naming bands to draw parallels to, but you can just listen for yourself. Oh, and a few members are now in another great band called Julia Brown. Enjoy. Edit: As you probably know they've been back for a while, and just put out a new album with Run For Cover.
