Teeny Lieberson was playing in the indie-psych band Here We Go Magic when a break from the group led to the writing of a batch of songs that formed the groundwork for what would become TEEN. Joined by two of her sisters and a friend, the band plays eerie, swirling psych-flavored pop music with a heavy emphasis on lyrics and vocals. The quartet treated us to a stripped-down set in the studio and chatted with Maia about their history and, curiously enough, dingy Nova Scotia venues.
Featured song: “Come Back”
TEEN’s In Limbo is out now on Carpark.
