Introducing: Teen Canteen


What comes to mind when you hear the words TeenCanteen? A canteen full of teenagers? A secret club?

How about an indie-pop girl group?

Let us introduce you to TeenCanteen; hailing from Scotland these girls are here to give you a well needed dose of sugar sweet indie-pop. Singing of love, loss, break ups in the good old fashioned pop style. We’d recommend you check out debut single Honey, which quite literally is as sweet as honey vocally, the harmonies throughout have such a twang to them with their Scottish accents.

I think what we love so much about TeenCanteen is that they’re taking pop back to what it needs to be, without the gimmicks and with added Scottish fun!

From playing the T-Break stage at T in The Park in 2014 to releasing their second single ‘You’re Still Mine’ in June of the same year the foundations for a firm future have been laid. Currently recording their debut album at TAPE Studios in Edinburgh we look forward to these upbeat, funky songstresses bringing out new material for us to boogie along to!

They’re also raising money for Scottish Women’s Aid through track ‘Sister’, which can be purchased here on limited edition (100 only) jelly red cassettes. Do you good deed for the day and grab yourself a copy!

About the author

There’s a lot of music out there - good music. At Essentially Pop our remit is that we cover music that deserves to be heard, with a particular focus on independent artists. That doesn't mean we won't cover your old favourites - rather we hope to give you some new favourites as well.

We no longer accept unpaid PR agency work. We believe the creative arts have value, and this includes writing. As always, we will write about artists who contact us - or who we contact - for free - but we can no longer work free of charge for PR agencies. We work hard, we put in a lot of hours writing, and we ask that you respect that. Contact us for our very reasonable rates.
