The final single from the Croydon groups recent trio of releases; Ski Lift envoke the undefeatable feeling of youth on ‘Teenager’.
No matter your age, most will longingly look back at their teenage years with admiration and longing, as is vocalist Benji Tranter on Ski Lift’s latest release. Smooth and precise with its angular guitars, ‘Teenager’ finds Ski Lift escaping into a much calmer and straightforward take on indie rock than their previous releases, as the Croydon group fondly reminisce upon their joy-filled youth.
Explaining ‘Teenager’ in further detail, Benji Tranter shared: “Teenager represents the mindset of youth – the optimism, the cynicism, the freedom, the rebellion. That time in your life when everything is ahead of you, and life is exciting and you believe that you can change the world – while at the same time you’re still imprisoned by it. There is a bittersweetness to it but it’s visceral and real and tangible. Life can beat you into submission and apathy, but the young will always fight that. This is me refuting the mundanity and conformity of adulthood, even if only for two and a half nostalgic minutes at a time.”
