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: a 12 song odyssey recorded in Bushwick with Bryan Keller at Zen as Fuck Studios.
My name is Charles Brownstein and I was born in Montreal, Quebec. I presently live in Vancouver, BC.I am a true lover of music, food, books, film, and stand-up comedy. Foremost it is music that I love, that is what drove me to create this site. I confess to liking Duran Duran and the Bee gees in my youth.I prefer In Utero to Nevermind and safe as milk instead of Trout Mask Replica.Northern Transmissions is a Music website that features interviews from musicians and bands we love. We have interviewed so many of them, from The Drums to Destroyer.
