Teen’s ‘Love Yes’ Album Will Make You Want To Dance With Your Dog: BUST Review

by BUST Magazine


You’re going to want to play Love Yes everywhere: at a house party, doing the dishes, or dancing with your dog—and not just because it’s full of perfectly concocted psychedelic pop/’80s dance synth jams.

As catchy as TEEN’s third album is, it never feels too glossy; there’s a world-weariness involved, as the Brooklyn-based band wrestles with the distressing emotional truths of being a woman. “Superhuman” muses on women’s fraught sense of sexuality (“Will I be put down and scorned?”).

By turns rapturous and dispiriting, Love Yes is ultimately about owning one’s complicated, messy sense of womanhood in a world that forever wants to define us as one thing.
