From green to blue

Fuck off, I'm trying to take a leak
It’s reprehensible that, as a Vancouver-based music blog, I haven’t written about Teen Daze yet. The city’s new local favourite has been getting some solid press lately thanks to notable remixes (Yeasayer, Local Natives, Twin Sister) and blog-friendly chillwave tunes.

With lots of natural imagery (trees, sunshine) and heartfelt romance (“I need to be with you”), this an awesomely blissful late-summer swoon.

His music has been picked up big American sites, but kudos to Teen Daze for going with the Canadian spelling on this one.
