LISTEN: TEEN – “Electric” Author:   ·  September 21st, 2012

TEEN…where do we begin? Let’s start with the basics…

“Brooklyn’s TEEN came together when Teeny Lieberson, formerly of Here We Go Magic, left her post in the band in order to make music with her sisters Katherine and Lizzie, and longtime friends Jane Herships and Maia Ibar. Recorded in summer 2011 in a barn in rural Connecticut, (their latest album) In Limbo keeps the band grounded in their own world of psychedelia while giving songs the room to take shape. The density and layers of the band’s morphing keyboards, driving synths and jungle drums let their finely arranged vocals sit gloriously on top.”

I like that TEEN doesn’t call themselves ‘Brooklyn based’. Rather, they’re “of” Brooklyn – a nod to the intensity of the New York-wave that hits you when listening to their music. Their catchy, “paisley underground” record In Limbo is amazing from start to finish; made up of equal parts nostalgia, raw vocals, and electro-goodness. If you’re a fan of Beach House, Vivian Girls, or Washed Out…you’ll be in love.

TEEN just kicked off a North American tour with Santigold and Hospitality (see dates below). Their current lineup includes Teeny Lieberson, Lizzie Lieberson, Jane Herships & Katherine Lieberson. ALSO, Dan Deacon recently remixed one of our favorite TEEN tracks, “Better”. As a little bonus, here is a free download of the song:
