Raleigh’s Teens In Trouble and Los Angeles’ Desert Mambas have created something wonderful together on their new split EP. Teens in Trouble kick out two gloriously fuzzy punky indie tracks that explore what it means to live in the moment and what to do when your therapist ghosts you. Those are followed by Desert Mambas’ two brilliantly bluesy rock songs that dive into longing, identity, and mental health. The strong friendship between Lizzie Killian of Teens In Trouble and Bailey Moses of Desert Mambas can be felt in every aspect of the EP as they highlight the importance of creating art with your friends and the joy that collaboration can bring. Teens In Trouble / Desert Mambas is available everywhere today via Asian Man Records and Kill Rock Stars. Teens In Trouble and Desert Mambas will be touring the US together in December.
Punknews editor Em Moore caught up with Lizzie and Bailey over Zoom to talk about the new EP, songwriting, The Artist’s Way, Elvis, and so much more. Read the interview below!
