Refusing to stay within the bounds of Australian indie, Melbourne based four-piece Teenage Dads, create melodies and rhythms that collide at the intersection of disparate worlds: early 2000s NYC indie, ‘80s New Wave and Synth Pop, and the explosiveness of more contemporary influences including bands like Two Door Cinema Club and Phoenix.
Teenage Dads began to gain a reputation for their compelling live performances in late 2019 following several years of self-funded touring. In spite of the stultifying lock-downs of 2020, Jordan Finlay (vocals/multi-instrumentalist), Vincent Kinna (drums), Angus Christie (bass) and Connor McLaughlin (guitar), all friends from their school days, stunned and delighted audiences with their Chugg Music debut EP, EXIT SIGN which signalled a rapidly maturing approach to song-writing and recording.
Teenage Dads have been fan favourites on triple j radio via tracks including, Teddy, Hey Diego! and most recently Speed Racer.
Teenage Dads have sold-out performances at The Metro Theatre, Melbourne’s iconic Corner Hotel and Brisbane’s The Zoo. Tours of the UK, Europe, and the US lead the band further into 2023 before they return home in late 2023.
