Teenage Dreams So Hard To Beat (PL)

Iowa Super Soccer are back with a 4 track EP, following their highly aclaimed debut EP, Wild World.

Since their first release, ISS have been on the road, playing their music to all those eager for some of the most interesting music made inside Polish borders.

On the new Teenage Dreams So Hard To Beat, they've lost their innocence, and this can be seen right away on the first track The River.
The indie catchy pop tunes, mellow and sung so delicately have been adulterated. They've been plugged to the current and injected high doses of electricity and drums into their music.

Alt-country, indie-pop and ...... echoes of The Walkabouts here and there, Mojave 3 and Galaxie 500 waving to us as we listen to these beautiful 4 tracks and the Polish duo Anita Lipnicka & John Porter right round the corner. Do we see Sweden here as well, with their acoustic pop gloomy dreams?

Michal's voice grew wings, got rougher and louder. Together with Monika's vocal contribution, sounding sweet as always, with Slawek on percussion, now sounding louder than ever, Marcin on the guitar and Blazej on bass, this Myslowice based quintet have managed to evolve quite positively, deciding not to play more of the same and renewing their sound.
Sounding more live than ever, this release works perfectly live, as I've witnessed two weeks ago as they played live @ Lubu Dubu in Krakow.

Their 4 track EP comes to an end after 15 minutes, but be sure that you'll be repeating yourself these 15 minutes for several times. The River, 10000 miles (both tracks available for download), Live as you'll die tomorrow and The straight story keep on playing, on and on, and on........

Catch them live and see by yourself, how Teenage Dreams are So Hard To Beat!!!
