TEEN opening for Eleanor Friedberger at the Media Club in Vancouver.
The band features the Lieberson sisters, including lead singer and multi-instrumentalist Teeny Lieberson, keyboardist Lizzie Lieberson and drummer Katherine Lieberson, originally from Halifax. Bassist Jane Herships hails from New Jersey. The group has been described as “Deerhunter‘s Microcastle album played by girls. From Halifax.” Others have noted a krautrock influence (see below).
Carpark Records released Carolina on May 28. Stereogum said of the title track, “… 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’s acclaimed debut full-length was released on August 28, 2012. Rolling Stone put their track “Better” at #38 on their list of the “50 Best Songs of 2012”. They were also selected as one of TIME Magazine‘s 11 Great Bands You Don’t Know (But Should), a Stereogum Band to Watch and Gothamist‘s Best Local Bands to Watch in 2013.
