Chumped – Teenage Retirement

Chumped are young, and they’re misfits. They don’t skirt those qualities on their debut LP, Teenage Retirement, a strong opening statement of charming pop punk with airtight hooks and ripping guitar leads. The album, like its title suggests, deals with the transition between awkward adolescence and making it on your own. Often, it feels like a mirror on Millennial angst and indecision. As the band once put it in an interview, “Teenage Retirement” means “moving out of your mom’s basement but not losing what was awesome about living in your mom’s basement.”
