From the suburbs of Nashville, a Secret Policeman's Ball is an indie rock band that has spent the last 6 years cultivating songs and playing numerous shows in the Southeast. Teenage Crimewave, their first full length album, is a collection of songs that span the band's many influences. The finished product results in something different than the music trends of today. Male and female vocals alternate as the sound shifts from quiet to loud and back again, with a good amount of synth thrown in for an ethereal good measure.

They've mastered texture here, and even more deftly, have merged hardcore styles with some more '80s gloss, creating a unique beast.
—John Gentile , PUNK NEWS
Don't let the shoegazer cover fool you--this is not your traditional indie-rock record. It's sweepy and effect-laden, with soft and gentle melodics with moody, haunting female vocals...
—Matt Brunk, SLUG MAGAZINE
Throughout the ten tracks of their debut full-length, A Secret Policeman's Ball offers up an avant garde guided tour through the history of modern underground music from the 1980s through today, melding dark new wave with noisy post-punk, peppered with flashes of throat-shredding hardcore and chill-inducing black metal.
—Tim Schwader, THE IMPALER SPEAKS
A fresh, heavy and intricate take on good old fashioned garage rock. . A Secret Policeman's Ball has put themselves at the very top of the 'hot bands to watch' list with their debut cd Teenage Crimewave. Very Highly Recommended.
