((The Teenagers)) Band Profile and Upcoming SXSW Concerts - Oh My Rockness

London/Paris synth-pop trio The Teenagers have a whole song devoted to Scarlett Johansson (called "Starlett Johansson," presumably to protect the innocent). I learned from the song that Scarlett "started out on Broadway when she was eight." Obviously, they did their homework. They also have a very dirty song called "Homecoming" about doing, well, dirty stuff with American cheerleaders. And they get right to the point with their track, "Fuck Nicole."

The Teenagers also have funny voice-overs during their songs about fashion and things. And though their music has been likened to the soundtrack of a porno, these three guys are just really being more silly than sexy. They don't take themselves too seriously (they list "puberty" and "party" as some of their influences). If you like to laugh while listening to your post-new-wave, this is the band for you.
