Teenagersintokyo (Sydney, Australia)

The five-piece from Sydney are set to release their new single on Back Yard Recordings

Teenagersintokyo hailing from... well, Sydney, are adept at constructing melodic songs in the vein of subtly dark indie, blending disco with grunge and goth. With soft sultry vocals and lightly persistent guitar riffs, it's easy to see why they have been chosen to support the likes of CSS, Midnight Juggernauts, and The Gossip. Now working on their upcoming album with the producer for Bat For Lashes, David Kosten, they are soon to release their double A-side single 'Isabella/Long Walk Home' on Back Yard Recordings on the 5th October.
