L.A.-based garage-trio, Teenage Wrist, has shared their for “Swallow.” A new signing to Epitaph, the band includes Kamtin Mohager (bass, vocals), Marshall Gallagher (guitar, vocals), and Anthony Salazar (drums). The overall sound of this track, for me, reminds me of Mudhoney, Screaming Trees, or any other band the Singles movie was about. The surest thing is that Teenage Wrist sound like they just stepped out of the early to mid ‘90s. Even the aesthetic of the video feels as though it’s from that era.
Stereogum praised “Swallow” for its “lo-fi guitars, straightforward riffs, and strong drumbeat,” so, basically, they’re talking about grunge. Yes, “Swallow” is a cool and enjoyable track, but it’s nothing new, although it might be new to the kids.
Along with the previously released “Stoned, Alone,” “Swallow” has landed Teenage Wrist on the Spotify playlists New Noise, New Music Friday, and Rock United.
Guitarist Marshall Gallagher commented in reference to the forthcoming album:
I think those songs really set the tone for what the album is about and show the darker and more aggressive side of the band.
