Whilst the music swells, flitting left and right in the stereo field, Hoodlem’s vocal on ‘Teenager’ stays true and centred as if her eyes are locked on to you for every word she delivers. There’s a vulnerability to the way she sings that draws you closer as the song progresses. Which, as it happens, is exactly what she wants from the subject of her lyrics. No doubt this one had the desired effect.
