Letting Up Despite Great Faults on 90210!

Teenage Tide by Letting Up Despite Great Faults was featured in the CW’s 90210. In the episode “Mama Can You Hear Me?” The song is playing while Dixon & Austin are egging & TP-ing Holly’s house. Then Naomi & Holly help Mitchell walk the carpet for the after party. As someone who doesn’t watch 90210, this means little to me, but perhaps you will understand the previous sentence better than I do.

Under the Radar Premieres New Letting Up Video

Letting Up Despite Great Faults are the featured band today on NPR’s World Cafe

The fine folks over at World Cafe have featured Letting Up Despite Great Faults as their band of the day today.

World Cafe shared Teenage Tide as part of a compilation of up and coming bands a few days back. You can download the full sampler here.

Of Letting Up World Cafe says, “A melancholy dissonance between teenage inferiority and uncontainable optimism courses through the band’s wistful tunes, which find Lee sounding both nostalgic and caught in a moment that feels never-ending. “Teenage Tide,” for example, revels in the highly saturated emotions of adolescence before abruptly self-destructing. The audio distorts as if the listener’s headphones have become dislodged during a run home from school. Hear this song, and another from Paper Crush, on today’s World Cafe: Next.”

NPR Calls Letting Up Despite Great Faults an Up and Coming Artist to Watch

NPR’s World Cafe named Letting Up Despite Great Faults as an Up and Coming Artist to watch.

NPR said:
“The melancholy dissonance of teenage inferiority and uncontainable optimism course through this wistful piece, finding lead singer Mike Lee sounding both nostalgic and caught in a moment that feels never-ending. “Teenage Tide” revels in the highly saturated emotions of adolescence before abruptly self-destructing. The audio distorts as if the listener’s headphones have become dislodged while running home from school.”
