Separated Anxiety

Guest Room 03:18
I don’t even have a guest room yet How can I expect to die like that With space that’s shared and rent that’s due When it’s still my turn to vacuum  I lived past my first line in the dirt Never thought my twenties could come first I’ve talked too many friends down over the phone Not to meet up at our next milestone If I’m gonna be Somebody Deliberately alive I want to do it right I pay somebody on the internet To talk through things I don’t know how to fix it’s an exercise in buoyancy Not insured for the help I need I give myself fat lips Chewin out my cheeks when I’m anxious So I’ve told a few friends who say, “be gentle, kid” But that only works some of the time How do I do it right How can I do it right I’m not sure which one I fear worst (Going young or getting old) Guess I’ll take whatever comes first (Going young or getting old) It’s not like I had a say in being born (Going young or getting old) At least I’m not convinced I deserve either one anymore

2020 was poised to be Future Teens’ breakout year. After releasing their sophomore LP Breakup Season, cosplaying as Carly Rae Jepsen, and zeroing on the romantic longing of fans worldwide, the Boston quartet was rising. While such a hard stop was part of every band’s story in 2020, the momentum hadn’t left the group — guitarists/vocalists Amy Hoffman and Daniel Radin, drummer Colby Blauvelt, and bassist Maya Mortman — straying too far from their central heartline. Deliberately Alive, their blustery follow-up EP, is Future Teens at their most explosive and earnest, showcasing a band in between journal volumes.

Fans of the band’s confessional tone will hear it ring throughout, regardless of the messenger. When Hoffman’s lead vocalist, you get “Guest Room,” a strutting emo-pop moment where there’s more than just the first of the month living rent-free in their head. Radin’s turn brings “Play Cool,” a vignette of gig life and the fallouts that can occur during a local opener’s set. Both deliver the classic Future Teens formula: open on a slice of East Coast life, sprinkle in some anxiety and self-facing critique, and let the band surge beneath. Winking one-liners characterize both Radin’s “Separated Anxiety,” which crackles the release to life, and Hoffman’s “Bizarre Affection,” featuring a starburst of an intro that disintegrates into another night alone.

But as Future Teens knows, there’s an after implied in all of these uneasy, warped presents—make sure you stick around for Future Teens’ latest reimagining of a pop song. This time, it’s Cher’s “Believe.”
