Teen Reveal New Track “Paradise”

Teen hare "Paradise" from upcoming Carolina EP

TEEN just wrapped up a European tour and will head out for a North American tour with Eleanor Friedberger starting June 4th. All tour dates are listed below. Carpark Records will release Carolina on May 28th. Bandleader and former Here We Go Magic keyboardist Teeny Lieberson lets her voice float above the group’s vaguely krautrocky churn, and it’s an exceedingly pleasant head-trip.

TEEN The band is lead singer and multi-instrumentalist Teeny Lieberson, keyboardist Lizzie Lieberson, drummer Katherine Lieberson (the three are sisters), and bassist Jane Herships— The new EP was recorded with producer Daniel Schlett, who recently worked on DIIV’s Oshin, at Strange Weather studio in Brooklyn.

While In Limbo’s songs have many layers and effects, TEEN intended Carolina to be a more natural affair, with the band only playing what they could physically perform in a live setting. Teeny sings in a higher register here, inspired by Kate Bush and Al Green. “Our music in the past was so about interweaving melodies, creating movement by syncopation, and simple chord structures,” Teeny says. “It felt like the next step forward would be to take a more simplistic, live approach, play lines in unison and create a different kind of conversation between the instruments.”
