LUTHERAN TEENS is an album about measuring your present self against the impossibly lofty standards you set as a kid. It’s about what happens when real life gets in the way of your unrealistic dreams. It’s about continuing to create art in the face of the world’s aggressive and justified indifference.
It’s about Pat Benatar, the ELCA, Donald Sutherland, ennui, White Hats and the Karens who love them, the guilt that accompanies political inaction, dreadlocks, spray tans, and Parliament cigarettes.
