At last, The Virgins may break through that unruly barrier that has been diverting their sound from the ears of the deserving public. ‘Teen Lovers’ is the epitome of cool, there’s no two ways about it. Its like a blend of 60’s groove, 80’s funk and modern rock, like if John Lennon played with MGMT, or Barry White guesting on a Flaming Lips record. The intro only hints at what is to come, but instantly captures the ear, sending a message to your legs to get off that chair and cut some shapes. It’s addictive melodies and thumping beats combine with searing vocals to form a package that at once gets you up on your feet, and at the same time makes you want to find a strangers bed to lie down in.
