Psychic Teens - "Less" (video) (Premiere)

"Less" gives you the sense that Philly's Psychic Teens have the guitar-bass-drum power-trio format down pat.

On "Less", Philly ruffians Psychic Teens power through with a no-frills guitar-bass-drums set-up that's rougher than post-punk and more darkly shaded than grunge. As the song builds in intensity and pace, you get the sense that Psychic Teens have the formula for quiet(er)-loud-louder dynamics down pat.

The video for "Less" premieres here on PopMatters; "Less" is off Psychic Teens' 2013 full-length Come, which was released in August via SRA.
