The Terrordactyls

Saturday, March 01, 2008's not just about teenage pregnancy

"If you loved Juno, you'll love The Terrordactyls"... according to the press release anyway. The Terrordactyls may not have featured on the movie soundtrack, but their twee, cutesy, indie pop shares Juno's sweet sarcastic charm. The back and forward, puppy dog-like playfulness between Michael Cadiz and Tyrel Stendahl has indie pop-bashfulness written all over it.

Having met in high school on the island of Vashon, the pair's relationship fluttered about through musical chemistry. That chemistry remained long after school broke forever, but their lives took them to different parts of America. The pair is now split between New York City and Washington, but somehow they find plenty of time to write and record.

The band's self-titled debut album is now available and features the Juno-fied hit "Devices", with Kimya Dawson (Moldy Peaches) on guest vocals. A super cute music video has also been released for the song, displaying his and hers talking scissors.

The entire album is packed with soft, melancholic, dandy pop tunes that'll pull your heartstrings in fourteen different directions. Individually, each song deals with a different human emotion, from broken friendships to young love in the 21st century. Whether hip or square, fans of Belle and Sebastian or Camera Obscura are likely to be left swooning around their teapots.
