KNAPSACK and UNDERSCORES, “Teenage Cloud Anthem”
“Teenage Cloud Anthem” is full of relatable words for those listeners who need a release from their anxieties and pressures, courtesy of Chicago’s knapsack and San Francisco’s underscores. While the words and some of the vocals will fall into the same camp as music by Gnash or Call Me Karizma, the music in “Teenage Cloud Anthem” is pretty potent progressive electronics, much along the lines of what is coming out of Europe by the likes of DROELOE, Taska Black, or San Holo. So the song treads the lines between two relatively different genres and should easily draw fans from both. “Teenage Cloud Anthem” is one of those likable alt.pop songs that reaches out to those who need it, upon whom it will likely have a more profound emotional effect.
