REVIEW: Teenage Fanclub - “I’m In Love”

Teenage Fanclub reached a cult status, with fans who follow their music religiously. A big influence on the European music scene (particularly in the UK, where the group hails from), this band is regarded as a rather underground act overseas.

 

However, Teenage Fanclub enjoy a certain elite status within the local music scene, although the band managed to maintain a rather humble profile throughout the years.

 

They were able to channel the melodies and pop sensibilities of bands such as The Smiths, but adding more grit and immediacy to the formula. For instance, they don’t intellectualize their lyrics and sound too much, and they flirt with influences such as punk and garage.

 

Following a lengthy silence, the band is back with a brand new single, “I Am In Love,” anticipating a brand new album to be released soon. The track exposes the brighter and more optimistic side of the band; through layers of crunchy, jangly guitars that drive the texture of the songs. The vocals are slightly buried underneath the instrumentals, with a layer of reverb adding a lush and ethereal feel to the production aesthetics.

 

Rather compact and immediate, this track is understated and direct, continuing on the legacy of the band with tact and finesse.
