LISTEN: DUDES - "Teenage Rebels"
By Quinn S.
A name like DUDES can go one of two ways, but I assure you this project is filled with substance over any sort of gimmickry. Take for example the spacey, chilled out rattle of "Teenage Rebels." With a bit of latter day Ryan Adams & The Cardinals guitar riffage, the echo of late '80s indie pop, the expanse of shoegaze, and a bit modern day electropop sweetness, it's equal parts accessible pop and evocative, chillwave-tinged pop.
"Teenage Rebels" is from DUDES' latest EP, Summer Vacation. If you dug it, you can listen and score a free download of the EP below. Track 3 even features Freddie Mercury on backup vocals.
