about

Hong Kong noise rock outfit The Yours return with their second full-length album, entitled “Teenagarten”. Recorded by Yang Haisong of P.K.14 at Psychic Kong in Beijing, the second album is rawer, darker and more intense than its predecessor, yet maintains the bandʼs rich melodic structures and teenage angst.

The album opens with its title track, which reveals the bandʼs attempt to explore its heavier roots and sets the tone for the remaining tracks. “Winonaʼs Tattoo”, “Distorted Kross” and “K” form the backbone of the album, delivering colossal dissonances and sprawling soundscape. Dynamic vocal interplay continues to be one of the most distinguishing characteristics of the band, most notably with “Bad JuJu” , featuring guest vocals by Fuhan from Beijing dance rockers Queen Sea Big Shark. “Valley Kids” , a nostalgic ballad filled with layers of shimmering distortion, sees a softer side of the album. But the occasional calm canʼt hide the rage underneath, the last three-song section, consisting of “Spunk”, “Death Rat” and “Pink Snoopy”, finds the band experimenting with more complex rhythms and structures.

The Yoursʼ sophomore release sees another linear step in their evolution; nevertheless, “Teenagarten” is by no means a progressive, sophisticated album. As the title suggests, the eleven-track album is meant to horrify adults and please teenagers. It is still very much a lo-fi collage dedicated to youth culture.

Track Name: Darkness '91
LOOKING FOR A CHANGE
TOMORROW’S FAR AWAY
NEVER SEEMS TOO CLOSE
GET INTO THE HOLE
BORN IN ’91, DARKNESS ’91
PIN ME TO THE GROUND
THE WORLD HAS STRIPPED ME DOWN
NOWHERE TO BE FOUND
JUST INSIDE MY ARMS
BORN IN ’91, DARKNESS ’91
WONDER HOW YOU USED TO HOLD ME BACK
FIND ME TRAPPED AND SCARED EVERYWHERE
LOOKING THROUGH THE EYES OF A FUCKIN’ MESS
WE’RE LIVING IN PIECES LIKE YOU SAID
TELL ME HOW YOU FEEL
SHOW ME WHAT YOU’VE SAID
PEACEFUL SELFISH KIND
TIME TO CHANGE YOUR MIND
BORN IN ’91, DARKNESS ’91
Track Name: Winona's Tattoo
I’VE GOT NONE, GIVE ME SOME
RISE UP HIGH, DON’T LET IT RUN
FEEL THE PAIN, ERASE THE STAIN
SHE’S ON HER WAY, WINONA’S IN THE RACE
PLEASE DON’T LET ME FALL
THE MAGIC OF THE LORD
I WAS DROWNED, YOU WERE SAVED
KEEP ME WARM, TIL THE DAWN
PLEASE DON’T LET ME FALL
THE MAGIC OF THE LORD
PICTURES ON THE WALL
RELIGION WITHOUT GOD
GOLDEN DREAM, FORGIVE THE SIN
SHE’S GOT THE HEAT, WINONA IS THE KEY

KILLING JUJU'S LIFE
WEIRDO'S LULLABY
SATELLITE OF VIBES
TEENAGE JESUS CHRIST
LEFT US WITH NO SIGN
COME ON YOU NASTY FACE
PEERS OUT FROM BEHIND
HOOKING UP WITH SERIAL MURDERS
KILLING JUJU’S LIFE
Track Name: Public Eye
HEY NOW EVERYONE COMES FROM THE UNDERGROUND
SOMETIMES WE FIGHT AND HAVE TO LOSE OUR BOUNDS
HEY I LIKE YOU MILK THE SOUND AND TWIST MY MIND
SOMETIMES YOU ARE JUST THE ONE WHO KEEPS ME CALM
NEVER GONNA UNDERSTAND
HEY YOU ALWAYS LOOKING FOR THE ULTRA SPACE
SOMETIMES I DON'T KNOW WHAT YOU'VE BEEN GOING THROUGH
HEY YOU SPIN MY HEAD DOWN WITH YOUR SMILING GAZE
SOMETIMES ALL THE EYES STARE AT YOU FROM THE SPACE
NEVER GONNA UNDERSTAND
Track Name: Distorted Kross
GET OUT OF MY WAY, JUMP INTO THE DAY
WE LAY IN PIECES, CRACKED IN THE NIGHT
THE FARTHER I GO, THE LESS I KNOW
DISTORTED NATION, ARE YOU STILL SURPRISED
THE SECONDS PASS THROUGH THE OCEAN TO MY EYES
LAPSING INTO A DAYDREAM SPINNING BY
STEPPING OUT OF THE MOMENT IN THE TIME
SECRET ANGEL DISAPPEARS IN THE SKY
SPIT IN YOUR FACE, BUT THAT’S ALRIGHT
PUSH THROUGH THE HIGHWAY
CAUGHT A GLIMPSE OF THE LIGHT
IT’S ALL THE RAGE, WRITTEN ON YOUR FACE
DISTORTED ANGEL, WE BETTER STAY AWAY
Track Name: K
TOOK OUT THE TRASH
RACED OUT THE DOOR
THE NIGHT WAS FALLING
HIT THE ROAD AT THREE A.M
ROCK STATION WAS CALLING
SELL OUT PUNKS, BURN THEM DOWN
THERE'S GOT TO BE MORE
SMASHED WINDOWS
PLACE WAS RIPPED
MY BOYS GOT WASTED
TOOK A SIP OF THE ANGEL PISS
MY EYES WERE ROLLING
MET A GIRL, SHE SAT AND STARED
LIKE SHE DIDN'T CARE
SILKY LIPS, SPARKLING EYES
MADE ME FEEL CRAZY
I SAID K, JOIN MY RIDE
I'LL TAKE YOU EVERYWHERE
Track Name: Valley Kids
SWEET VALLEY IN THE CITY
TALKING ME AND YOU
PHONY NEIGHBORS QUIETLY GOSSIP
EVERY DAY IN JUNE
JUST LIKE THE SPREAD OF DISEASE
WE ARE ON THE LOOSE
NO KIDS CAN TRUST NOBODY
LEFT OUT IN THE COLD
THE YOUTHFUL CRUSH
THE BUBBLE LOVE
THE PERFECT LUST
THE CASE OF THE VIOLENT STARS
THE KISS OF US
THE MIST OF FUZZ
THE HEAT OF RUSH
THE CASE OF THE VALLEY KIDS
GETTING LOST IN DOWNTOWN WITH YOU
FEELING SUBWAY'S BLUE
DREAM OF THE GHETTO'S SPIRIT
PUTTING UP THE HOOD
NIGHT OUT THE ENDLESS SUMMER
SEARCHING FOR THE ROOF
GLOW BUGS WITH VITAL SPARKLE
LIGHTENING UP OUR ROOM
Track Name: Pink Snoopy
STATIC MOTION, THERE'S NOWHERE THAT I CAN HIDE
FROZEN TEARS, TOUCH THE RAINBOW WITH MY EYES
BLURRY FACES, SWIRLING STARS IN THE MILKY WAY
BROKEN SHADOWS, KEEP COMING IN AND OUT OF SIGHT
CAN'T YOU SEE ME, I WILL SEE YOU AGAIN TONIGHT
NO ONE HEARS ME, COLD BLOOD CREEPING ALL THE TIME
FEED MY VESSEL, WE WILL ALL GO UP IN FLAMES
PINK SNOOPY, YOU’RE THE MAGIC OF MY LIFE
DIAMOND MIRROR, NOW IT'S GONNA STEAL HER SOUL
SERIAL KILLER, SHEDS MY SKIN AND SLEEPS IN PAIN
CANDY TV, COVERED UP WITH SUGAR LIES
PLASTIC NEEDLE, LET IT FLOW INTO MY VEINS
CAN'T YOU SEE ME, WHAT YOU SEE IS NOT THE SAME
BOW MY HEAD DOWN,
THOUGHTS ARE SLITHERING THROUGH MY BRAIN
HAVE YOU EVER SEEN THE TRUTH BENEATH THE GLOW
PINK SNOOPY, I WILL TELL YOU WHAT I KNOW
LITTLE PINK SNOOPY, PLEASE HOLD ME TIGHT
I SAW THE ECHOES, I SAW MYSELF
SINGING POWER BALLAD, SURROUNDING SOUND
OH, NERVOUS TENSION, IT'S KINDA PURE
AGAINST THE TRUTH, IT'S JUST FOR YOU
LITTLE DRUNK SNOOPY, YOU SET ME FREE
13
I READ A FICTION, FIERCE VIOLENCE
REPEATED DUTIES, HAVE COME UNDONE
LONELINESS THREATENED, IN TWO SECONDS
WHO NEEDS A FRIEND AND WHO NEEDS LOVE
THE MORE YOU NEED THE MORE YOU LOSE
HAVE YOU EVER SEEN THE TRUTH BENEATH THE GLOW?
PINK SNOOPY, I WILL TELL YOU WHAT I KNOW
