TEEN is the Brooklyn-based, sisterly project of lead singer/songwriter Teeny Lieberson, setting out under her own name (more or less) after logging time with indie-psych band Here We Go Magic. Lieberson’s TEEN formed last spring and features her sisters Katherine and Lizzie as well as Jane Herships, the latter of whom makes spellbinding, downcast folk as Spider. It follows that "Electric,” TEEN’s prime cut, joins HWGM’s dream-state melodies and nearly-kraut rhythmic moments with Spider’s heavy-lidded siren style for a champion of a track, all laconic ’60s go-go attitude laced to an undercurrent of pulsating bass and layered, curlicue psychedelics. The band released the Little Doods EP in 2011, but it’s the forthcoming debut LP In Limbo that houses “Electric” and promises a very good year; it’s well crafted and great sounding, due in part to the mixer and producer credit given to Spaceman3′s Sonic Boom.
The band have played consistently since Winter 2010, including performances with Purity Ring, War on Drugs and Yellow Ostrich and most recently, Ariel Pink, Santigold, Frankie Rose, Dean Wareheim and Hospitality. Now they headline the Drake Underground in support of In Limbo.
