Review: Courage My Love – “Teenagers”
This past Thursday, Canadian rock trio Courage My Love released their latest track, “Teenagers.” It’s their first single since last October’s “Remission,” which was a fun, poppy follow-up to 2017’s album, Synesthesia.
Their Breakfast Club-themed video dropped the following day, which singer Mercedes Arn-Horn co-directed. Check it out here:
The song itself is a banger, a ridiculously catchy pop-punk earworm you’ll be singing for the next three weeks straight. I myself have had it on repeat on my way to and from work every day since release, no regrets. It sends me screaming right back to high school…
You know who they are: the ones who ruled the school, the top dogs, the popular kids. Some people never truly leave high school, do they? They spend the rest of their lives chasing that same high, wearing their letterman jackets well into their 50s, living out their days in the same town that birthed them.
Wanna live in your past
Leader of the pack
Don’t know who you’re fooling anyway
On some level, of course I get it. Why wouldn’t you want to stay somewhere that was so good to you? But we know nothing gold can stay, pony boy, so at some point you’ve gotta grow up, move on, and realize that sometimes the grass really is greener on the other side. “Teenagers” is a fantastic piece of musical nostalgia that makes you want to hop into a beat-up old Ford and drive off into the sunset.
According to The Record.com, the band plans to release music (and a video!) every six weeks for the rest of the year, which frankly sounds incredible and is sure to keep Mercedes, Phoenix, and Brandon quite busy. I’m so excited for the new music on the horizon– especially if it’s all going to be as fantastic as “Teenagers”– but I have to admit, I wish I could have it all at once!
