The Teenagers - Starlett Johansson
Do you remember when you were young and you couldn't get your mind off that unreachable on-screen crush? Obsessively finding out all you can about them to make yourself feel that little bit closer? Well, take all those adolescent emotions and sprinkle in a good amount of sardonic wit and you've got The Teenagers impossibly catchy Starlett Johansson . A synth-pop pastiche to everyone's favourite film star, Scarlet Johansson, it will stick in your head like perfectly round pink bubblegum blown by the woman herself.
Hot on the heels of their NME single of the week Homecoming , the cheeky Parisian trio are back with another melodic slice of passion infused synth-pop. Seeing the world through teen-tinted glasses The Teenagers (lead singer Quentin Delafon, guitarist / synth man Dorian Dumont and bassist Michael Szpiner ) remind us what it's like to be young. The lyrically ingenious Quentin interweaves snapshots of Johansson's films as well as teen magazine style "factoids" over beautifully crunchy guitar and soaring synths. Released on the ragingly hip Merok label, who can't seem to put a musical foot wrong, this track is like reading the secret teenage diary of ELO with Kim Wild for company.
Having completed a thorough tour of the UK festivals playing to amazed crowds at Reading & Leeds and an acclaimed appearance at the Underage Festival the release of Starlett Johansson is the lipstick-red cherry on the cake. \
Currently recording material with The Strokes producer Gordon Raphael, Starlett Johansson is a tantalising taste of what is to come and is truly a track for anyone who remembers what it's like to fall in love in front of the big screen ... in an obsessive kind of way.
