The Teenagers - Starlett Johansson
Prefix Mag reports: [edited]
Like their countrymen Phoenix and Daft Punk, the Teenagers use big dumb 80s riffs that have been Frenched up to the point of acceptability. The song follows the group’s established template, with an ambiguously European creep speaking slowly, leading to an airy (and Air-y) chorus from his more dashing counterpart.
The only things these two seem to know about Miss Scarlett are nuggets gained from men’s magazines and video rentals. In the manner of a seventeen year old dolt, the actions of the parts she plays are attributed to the actress herself..
But when you hear the words, “and then I noticed/poor Jared Leto,” avoiding a grin is clinically impossible.
