The Virgins - 'Teen Lovers'
'New York art-rock pumped full of truly irresistible testosterone and, yep, totally seductive' - The Fly
'The Virgins are inextricably linked to the city of NY and the mere notion of the word cool'- i-D
'grubby New York indie with some of that city's disco gloss, like a giant love-in between CBGBs and Studio 54." The Guardian
'They make The Strokes look like The Monkees. They'll be huge' - Esquire
New York natives The Virgins release 'Teen Lovers' on February 23rd through Atlantic Records. The single is taken from their self-titled debut album, which will be out in April. The band have just been named as one of NME's '10 Tips For 2009' as well as a 'Band To Watch in 2009' by MTV.
'Teen Lovers' is the second single to be lifted from the band's anticipated debut album, and follows the hotly-tipped tails of 'One Week Of Danger' which was released in December. The track won various accolades including the prestigious 'Single of the Week' spot in the Guardian Guide, and a rapturous 9/10 NME single review.
2008 saw the band stamp their mark on the UK live scene, from wowing audiences when touring with Band Of Horses and The Pigeon Detectives to delivering explosive headline club sets to sold-out crowds at the Old Blue Last and Madame JoJo's legendary White Heat night.
The band hit London for a one-off show at Club NME on March 27th, then embark on their first UK headline tour.
