Teen Jesus and
the Jean Teasers
The opening of 2022 has been a monumental resume-builder for Teen Jesus and the Jean Teasers; selling out a headliner at the famed Corner Hotel, invitations to some of the country’s biggest festivals and landing in triple j’s Hottest 200 with the cracking ‘AHHHH!’ being just the beginning.
With these career wins and a few more birthdays under each of the Teenie Jeanies’ belts comes a collective sense of self-assuredness for Anna, Scarlett, Jaida and Neve. It’s a resolve not born of ego or entitlement, but of the coming-of-age they’ve experienced and a healthy confidence in the work they have put in to get where they are. But, as their EP Pretty Good For A Girl Band will attest, it’s come in the face of being undeservedly underestimated.
Channelling Riot Grrrl-era energy with a 2022 spin, Teen Jesus and the Jean Teasers are the most natural, unapologetic and damn likeable punk-rockers you'll meet. Formed during high school in their hometown of Canberra, Teen Jesus burst onto the scene in 2019 and quickly snapped attention for their teenage ragamuffin image and searingly good garage punk sound.
The group cut their teeth playing festivals including BIGSOUND, Groovin' The Moo, Laneway, Falls, Lost Paradise, This That, Spilt Milk and supporting a slew of Australia's finest including Polish Club, Alex Lahey, Press Club, WAAX, Dear Seattle & more.
