TEEN is the namesake of Brooklyn-based musician Teeny Lieberson, but it’s the singer and multi-instrumentalist's last name that might be most important for the psych pop band. When Lieberson needed help filling out the group, she turned to her sisters, Lizzie and Katherine, and that literal kinship is apparent on the band’s recently released Carolina EP.

Unlike last year's superb debut album In Limbo, TEEN had its live show specifically in mind for Carolina — instead of overdubs, the EP's production incorporates only what the band could replicate on stage. The result is a washed-out and trippy yet pounding pop-meets-post-punk sound that serves as the musical bed for Lieberson's alluring vocal harmonies.





Set List:

  • "Carolina"
  • "Big Talk"
  • "Rose 4 U"

Hello all together,
recently I discovered TEEN on the internet and since then I love the music. And so I bought the Caroline EP on AmazonIt sounds great. The girls are playing wonderful and Teeny has such a great voice. MY favorit song is paradise. Think every day about it even during my work in an office. I wish the girls the very best and that they will come to Germany again. At best to the Ruhr-Area in Northrine-Westphalia.
