Why did it take the band ten years to record a new album, you ask???
“Much like Odysseus and Co., on our journey to make the ‘difficult second album,’ shit got rough,” singer Reggie Youngblood says. “A few of us heeded the siren call of ‘side projects.’ Tumultuous relationships and periods of Imposter Syndrome also impeded progress. Worst of all, I couldn’t write a chorus. And for a band that worships The Chorus, this was problematic.”
After touring exhaustively in support of Partie Traumatic, Youngblood and his bandmates — bassist Owen Cohen and keyboardists/vocalists Ali Youngblood and Dawn Watley — resettled around the U.S., in Brooklyn, Portland, and Athens, Georgia. Reggie started a power-pop group called Blunt Bangs. Owen released records on Kill Rock Stars under the moniker Gospel Music. Ali and Dawn sang and played and crafted. In late 2015, the four convened in Athens to make “Obligatory Drugs”.
Rookie is more lyrically earnest than its predecessor, and Youngblood notes that the “bratty-ness” is toned down — “but just a lil’ bit,” he says. “Yeah, the themes from our debut are still firmly in place on our sophomore: I love you, but you don't love me; you love me, but I don't love you; you're mean, I'm mean—shall we dance?”
Ugh, FINE.
Teen Commandments

Teen Commandments is a synth-pop band from Brooklyn. They throw parties, collect synthesizers and worship at the alter of pop music.

According to NYLON, "Teen Commandments transport you to another, more fun world full of late nights and dance parties– more like an '80s-meets-2016 dream world, more rainbow and groovy than anything that could exist in real life."

Put simply, Teen Commandments want to make you sweat, french kiss, and grin.
