Teenage Dads

Indie Pop | Australia

About

Refusing to stay within the bounds of Australian indie, Melbourne based four-piece Teenage Dads, create melodies and rhythms that collide at the intersection of disparate worlds: early 2000s NYC indie, ‘80s New Wave and Synth Pop. These all blend with the explosiveness of more contemporary influences like Two Door Cinema Club and Phoenix to create a sound and style that is finding them fans across Australia, North America, England and Europe.

Tracks including "Hey Diego!", "Speed racer" and the live show-stopping, "Teddy", have all gained radio support in Australia via Triple J, with BBC Radio 1 jumping onboard to support "Speed racer". Their most recent single "I Like It" features on playlists including New Music Friday, New Music Daily, Indie Brandneu, Indie Arrivals, Heaps Indie and many more.

Teenage Dads live performances have an equally epic reputation. In 2023 a schedule of over 80 shows across England, Europe, North America, and Canada have taken the band to an international audience. At home in Australia, sell-out performances at The Metro and Liberty Hall (Sydney), 170 Russell St (Melbourne), The Triffid and The Zoo (Brisbane), and Freo. Social (Perth) reinforce the desire for fans to experience the hectic energy Jordan Finlay (vocals/multi-instrumentalist), Vincent Kinna (drums), Angus Christie (bass) and Connor McLaughlin (guitar) emit on stage.

New music is continually in the works and Teenage Dads are looking toward the future with the aim of giving their fans more of what they want, and new levels of live performance to ensure they stand out as main stage headlining favourites.
