Am I the only one that finds this song a little strage? I mean it’s pretty clear the song is about the sad story of a teenager so deeply involved with drugs that he has no friends, is willing to try anything and ends up overdosing.Â The instrumentation and vocal performance however, have that hopeful shoegaze/dream pop feel so instead of a sad song about drugs I feel like I’m listening the The Rembrandts’ I’ll Be There For You, aka the Friends theme song, weird.
Despite the contrasting feel and production sound, A Teenager In Love is one of my favorite tracks from their self-titled debut LP. Does this track remind you of anything? Bowie -Â Modern Love maybe? Maybe a little bit. Either way, great song.
Never gonna fall for – Modern love…â€
