A review of the Teenage Fanclub song “Thin Air.”

 

sentiment of a YouTube comments section (and, believe me, this is the only time I'll do so), the world needed a new Teenage Fanclub album. This fall, the Scottish alt-rock heroes are back with their eleventh studio album, Here. Following their first single off this album, the newest single, "Thin Air," is replete with their charming and apt songwriting, infectious melodies, and fuzzy, nostalgic guitar and drum textures. TF fans will not be disappointed, and new listeners will be enthralled with the band's refreshingly upbeat sound.


Upon first listening to the new track, I felt similar to how I did when I listened to Teenage Fanclub for the first time. In a sea of melodramatic, moody, and at times, overly ethereal-sounding dream pop (okay, maybe this is just my sea), TF came to me with Beach Boys-esque sunniness and '90s alt edge. "Thin Air" strikes the same chord. The songwriting is smart, but not overdone; the sound is solid, but the slight distortion softens the atmosphere. It is the perfect driving and/or bike-riding soundtrack, if you ask me (and the best songs usually are).


The band's new album is forthcoming, continuing Teenage Fanclub's awesome legacy.
