Toronto’s DIY scene purveyors Teenanger have shared new single ‘Touching Glass’, the first to be lifted from their forthcoming sixth album ‘Good Time’, due to be released via Telephone Explosion Records on October 2. The new album was mixed by fellow Toronto musician Sandro Perri.

Speaking about the new track, bassist and vocalist Melissa Ball says:

“I was thinking about John Carpenter’s 1988 classic ‘They Live’ starring Roddy Piper before I wrote these lyrics so I guess I had that plot in the back of my mind. It’s pretty straight forward lyrically and partly about the fear of mind control and my frustrations with being tethered to/tired with my phone.”

After replying to a Craigslist advert offering an apartment with the words “Music OK”, the band converted the basement flat that previously worked as a reggae studio and after-hours club into a live practice room and adjacent fully-functional recording studio. They went on to battle two major floods, a CO2 leak, vermin infestation and constant mould to record the new album in the space.
