Strange Teen Heart is the second Record Machine release for Saharan Gazelle Boy, a collaboration between Capybara’s Darin Seal and Sea Change (aka Sarah Handelman). The EP is a super-quad of songs that conjure the love, loneliness and naiveté of teendom while continuing to develop the sleepy, bedroom pop of Saharan’s Airplane’s Can’t.
The melodramatic, synth-pop is the soundtrack for the shy, 1980s, pretty-but-doesn’t-know-it high school girl in all of us.
This new batch of songs was recorded over the course of many sun-soaked afternoons, and we couldn’t wait to get them out to you. A special co-release with Kansas City based the Record Machine. It will be released on iTunes later this month.
