I think other sites will agree with us on this. You tend to get A LOT of very dodgy demo's sent to your contact addresses and while we love receiving every demo or 7" (everyone please keep sending that's what were here for) there is only ever a rare commodity of diamonds in the mixer.

So, when Teenage Kicks got in touch the smiles on our faces all of a sudden got a lot bigger.

Teenage Kicks are:

On Vocals and Guitar, Peter van Helvoort
On Bass and Vocals, Jeff van Helvoort
On Guitar Patrick Marchent
On Drums Cameron Brunt

No prize's for guessing that Peter and Jeff are brothers.

Here's a nice quote from their MySpace:

"Teenage Kicks are not special. Teenage Kicks are not hip. Teenage Kicks are not on the cover of trendsetting magazines or fawned over in taste-making blogs. Teenage Kicks are a rock and roll band. In many incarnations, over many years, the band has existed. On the outskirts of Toronto’s vibrant downtown core, surrounded by an unlikely shroud of forest, the four friends have come together to create arena sized music in a space that can fit barely more than ten; what they call a modern take on late 60’s moody radio rock that was made so popular by the likes of The Who and Creedence Clearwater Revival". - Teenage Kicks

We have an interview to come from the guys in the coming weeks so be sure to look out for that and no doubt you will be hearing a lot more from them soon.

In the meantime we'll leave you with both tracks from their debut 7". Here is 'Shook Our Bones' and 'I Get What You Give'....
