Taking their moniker from a shortened version of frontwoman Teeny Lieberson's name, Brooklyn's TEEN incorporate everything from psychedelic rock to '90s R&B into their experimental pop. Formed in 2010 by multi-instrumentalists Lieberson, a former Here We Go Magic member, her sisters Lizzie and Katherine, and their friend Jane Herships, the women began crafting a sound in keeping with some of the other thriving styles at that time -- girl group-inspired noise pop, pulsating tribal electronics -- that also recalled past luminaries such as Galaxie 500 and the Velvet Underground. After adding Maia Ibar to the fold, TEEN recorded the Little Doods EP in April 2011. The quintet signed to Carpark and enlisted Spacemen 3's Sonic Boom to produce their debut album, In Limbo, which arrived in August 2012. The Lieberson sisters and new bassist Boshra AlSaadi returned in April 2014 with The Way and Color, a more focused set of songs that blended inspiration from D'Angelo and Erykah Badu into its psychedelic sounds. ~ Heather Phares, Rovi
