Inspired by post-punk, garage, '60s girl groups, and doo-wop, Teenage Burritos was founded in 2012 by Lucy Wehrly (Christmas Island) and Kirsten Gundel, soon joined by guitarists Kevin Gist (Plateaus) and Brian Carver (Spirit Photography). After releasing a six-song cassette on Burger Records, they were nominated Best New Artist at the 2013 San Diego Music Awards.
Their April 2018 full-length Something To Cry About, co-released by Volar Records and Burger Records, includes guest vocals on the track "Kamikaze" by Pall Jenkins of Black Heart Procession, Three Mile Pilot, and Mr. Tube & the Flying Objects. The cover features a drawing of John Lennon getting his head shaved, with a limited edition white vinyl version released by Volar.
