To celebrate the release of the new album, Teenage Sequence visits Kingston to play an in-store set.

The album takes you on a musical journey through some of music’s more shadowy intersections, with proto-house, acid, krautrock, UK garage, post- punk, disco, and pop creating a soundtrack over which Soomary tell acid- tongued and relatable stories about the humiliations and alienations of modern life. What kind of stories? Well: the casual racism of a date-gone- wrong and of the music industry, the endless series of hangovers that keep you stuck as an eternal kid, the despair of living in a world on the verge of destruction, the yearning when you fall in love despite all of this. Self-aware, with a dark humour, Soomary’s lyrics are drenched in socio-political overtones— although in his view that is a byproduct of who he is rather than a deliberate statement.

“I come from a background in explicitly political bands who used music as a platform for political standpoints. Teenage Sequence isn’t that; I simply write about my life, the world as I understand it and as I’ve experienced it. If that then becomes a social or political statement— and I know it does— then it is because my existence is a social or political statement.”
