Formed of Teeny Lierberson (formerly of Here We Go Magic), her sisters Katherine and Lizzie and longtime friend Jane Hership, TEEN make lo-fi psyche pop redolent of Paisley Underground bands like Opal and Rain Parade.
Recorded during the summer of 2011 in a converted barn in rural Connecticut, In Limbo puts pop and tribal elements to the fore. Opener “Better” is a Suicideesque march toward euphoria through repetition. “Sleep in Noise” comes on like a neo-psychedelic tribal stomp with a Spector-esque drive, while “Unable,” an all-butshapeless mass of organ swells and tremolo synths provides a loose structure for their transcendent vocal acrobatics.
In Limbo was mixed and produced in collaboration with Sonic Boom (Spacemen 3, Spectrum). His influence and guidance is subtly evident throughout, adding sympathetic undertones and ambience to the band’s well defined and inspiring songs.
