When someone writes the inevitable book on chillwave, a handful of artists will be discussed in terms that treat their songwriting with the respect it deserves, while others will be dismissed as bandwagoneers. Teen Daze will probably be in the former camp. Sure, there are shades of the aesthetic territory explored so richly by Washed Out's Ernest Greene, but where that act has incorporated guitars and live drums, Teen Daze pushes fully into blissed-out melodies with seemingly all-electronic instrumentation, including percussion, bass and synth. And while the outfit's evocation of eternal summer vacation is hardly new, its latest offering, All Of Us, Together, still manages to reverberate coolly in the mind from beginning to end.
