“Rarely have I had the experience where my partner is OK with my complexities; my intensity, my warmth, my ambition, generosity or lack thereof. The fact that I unabashedly will not be contained. Instead, my experience, especially in relationships with men, has been this: it is far more comfortable to keep me as a projection of what they want, rather than interact with who I really am.” — Teeny Lieberson

TEEN announces new album + shares first single “Only Water”

November 28, 2018 12:24 pm

We are beyond excited to announce the return of TEEN. The lieberson sisters shared their illuminating new single, “Only Water,” today via NPR Music. A celebration of life that doesn’t fail to acknowledge the sorrow and aimlessness of loss.

Teeny Lieberson on the track:
“‘Only Water’ tells the story of my experience of my father’s sickness and death. It explores the final moments that I had with him, as well as the processing of the loss of a parent. As it has been many years since his death, my relationship to losing him has changed. I have been thinking a lot about the idea of possession and how it can even exist once someone has died. The song questions this principle; if we are all water, can’t I have you? Can I be you? Which in, abstractly, is a celebration of letting go. The freedom within oneness as well as nothingness.”

Good Fruit, the follow-up to 2016’s Love Yes, is due out March 1st, 2019. Pre-orders are available now.

Tour dates:

January 16th – Brooklyn, NY – Baby’s All Right ^
March 19th – Los Angeles, CA – The Echo *
March 20th – San Francisco, CA – Café du Nord *
March 22nd – Portland, OR – Mississippi Studios *
March 23rd – Seattle, WA – Barboza *
March 29th – Brooklyn, NY – Elsewhere *
March 30th – Washington, DC – DC9

“Tokyo” music video

April 26, 2017 10:49 am

TEEN is back with a new music video for their track “Tokyo.” It was filmed at Mercury Lounge in NYC and directed by Jennifer Vanilla (Becca Kauffman of Ava Luna).

“The video for ‘Tokyo’ was filmed before and during a packed TEEN concert in New York City in the summer of 2016.

The barebones pre-show sequence is a conceptual and aesthetic reference to a choreographic collaboration between Michael Clark Dance Troupe and The Fall for their song, ‘Lay of the Land,’ in 1983. This version follows a cartoonish duo, ‘Jennifer in Tokyo’ and her zesty partner, who function as a sort of spritely id, pursuing pleasure amidst conflict like impish angel/devils on the shoulders of the song’s protagonist. Simultaneously, a less mythical and more concrete storyline takes place alongside it: the transformation the band undergoes from soundcheck in an empty room, to backstage, to showtime. The dancers usher us through this process, ultimately becoming spectators to the environment they have helped energize. As they recede into the crowd, the band steps into the spotlight, and the real show begins.” — Jennifer Vanilla

The band also has a few upcoming shows, including a Brooklyn date:
May 5th – Hudson, NY – Half Moon
May 6th – Winoski, VT – Waking Windows Festival
May 12th – Brooklyn, NY – Sunnyvale
