Teen Body is a melancholic quartet hailing from Brooklyn, indulging young vulnerabilities, yearnings and fantasies in tender song. Consisting of three core members, Shannon Lee on vox/guitar, Alexander French on vox/bass (ex-White Laces, Happenin Records), and Marcus McDonald on drums (ex-Hoop Dreams, Captured Tracks) as well as new addition, guitarist Alex Bush, the band creates tracks with gossamer melodies, steady, heart-rending rhythms and fluttering guitars. Inspired by crystal magick, natural wonders and fast car rides through mountain roads, the music is a shimmering blend of shoegaze atmosphere and post punk grit.
After nearly two years of writing and gigging through the seasons of NYC, Teen Body is gearing up to release their debut LP, Get Home Safe. Recorded in Bushwick with Bryan Keller at Zen as Fuck Studios. Today, the band has shared the first track “Can’t Remember”.
Get Home Safe will be released 6/17/2016.
