Teens In Trouble - What's Mine

Asian Man

“Catchy, energetic, and equal parts Weezer and Jeff Rosenstock, rarely do artists hit upon such gold while only having a cumulative nine minutes of material released.” – Consequence 

“channeling some serious Weezer and Pixies vibes, and the end result couldn’t be more fun.” – Alternative Press 

“catchy and fuzzy in that ’90s alt way we all love.” – The Alternative 

Teens In Trouble create perfect emo-tinged pop-punk with a quirky, playful energy and fuzzy allure.” – Get In Her Ears 


Does it make you want to rock out? Does it make you want to cry? If the answer is both at once, you’re probably listening to Teens in Trouble.

Surging with emotion and bravado, Teens in Trouble has never sounded as ready to rock as they do on their arena-sized debut, What’s Mine. The bright-and-blazing project from Lizzie Killian (she/her) packages hard truths in hook-heavy, fuzzy-pop exteriors. The album is loaded with spiraling guitars, hard-driving drums, and super-groovy bass courtesy of producer and multi-instrumentalist Randy Moore, drummer Henry Chadwick, and Jeff Rosenstock lead guitarist Mike Huguenor; all unified by Killian’s passionate vocals and signature wit.

Teens In Trouble makes anthemic, emotionally driven indie-rock that merges the snappy, confessional style of Weezer with the Pixies’ soaring, fuzzed-out melodies. A California native who moved to Raleigh, North Carolina in 2019, Killian crafted Teens in Trouble’s self-titled debut EP during the pandemic, on a quiet street in Asheville, where she rekindled her love of songwriting following an extended hiatus.

The response was instantaneous and thrilling. Since its 2022 release, Teens in Trouble has been featured in Alternative PressBrooklynVeganConsequenceStereogum, and more. Two of the EP’s tracks, “I’m Not Worried” and “Decomposing,” have also been featured in the popular online battle royale game, Fortnite.

In 2023, Teens in Trouble teamed up with bluesy alt-country artist Desert Mambas on a split EP released by Kill Rock Stars and Asian Man Records. Singles from WHAT’S MINE have already been covered by Consequence (200 Best Songs of 2023), Paste Magazine (Best New Songs), UPROXX (Best New Indie Music From This Week), Stereogum, and BrooklynVegan. Teens in Trouble is named one of idobi Radio’s “100 Rising Artists You Need To Listen To in 2024.”
