Imperial Teen have shared their new single Don’t Wanna Let You Go, a sexy jam for these hot summer days. The new single kicks off with the signature Imperial Teen breathiness and vocal play and joins previously released songs Walkaway and We Do What We Do Best in the run up to Imperial Teen’s triumphant return with ‘Now We Are Timeless‘ on July 12. Take a listen to Don’t Wanna Let You Go via YouTube below.
In strict keeping with the band’s roots of creating seemingly clean, pop presentations as a springboard for dramatic themes of loneliness, triumph, success, and failure, ‘Now We Are Timeless’ moves us into a realm of inevitability for the band. While ‘Seasick,’ the band’s first release, thematically touched on the queasiness of pop and beach and sun and glare and the optimism that lies beneath, the new release serves as a bookend of sorts in its portrayal of a world in crisis, with its artwork showcasing a frostbitten but melting iceberg, monolithic and stationary yet impermanent and resonant.What has remained constant over the years is Imperial Teen’s indisputable knack for writing profound hooks as a framework for their musical memories. Their songs exhibit the realness, joy, and energy that only good friends can conjure.
