Teen Jesus and the Jean Teasers

About

Formed during high school in their hometown of Canberra in 2019, TEEN JESUS AND THE JEAN TEASERS - Anna Ryan (they/them; vocals/guitar), Scarlett McKahey (she/her; guitar/vocals), Jaida Stephenson (she/her; bass) and Neve van Boxsel (she/her; drums) - channel Riot Grrrl-era energy with a 2023 spin and are the most natural, confident and damn likeable punk-rockers you’ll meet. Now based across Dharawal Country/Wollongong, Ngunnawal/Canberra, and Naarm/Melbourne, the band have graduated into an astute group of early twenty-somethings – just as concerned about issues facing today’s women, non-binary people and young people everywhere as they are with their loud and completely cool punk rock sound.

On their debut EP Pretty Good For A Girl Band, Teen Jesus and the Jean Teasers proclaimed that they are a true force to be reckoned with and aren’t here to mess around. Their most recent single ‘Girl Sports’ hit #55 on the triple j Hottest 100, and the band played a string of summer festivals including Party In The Paddock, Beyond The Valley, NYE On The Hill and St Kilda Festival, following their sell-out national EP headline tour last spring. The PGFAGB EP saw praise from the likes of The Guardian, triple j, frankie, The AU Review, Music Feeds, The Music and Kill Your Stereo, cover stars on Spotify and Apple Music, with ‘AHHHH!’ taking the #117 spot on the Hottest 200 countdown last year.
