Brooklyn’s TEEN came together when Teeny Lieberson, formerly of Here We Go Magic, left her post in the latter band in order to make music with her sisters Katherine and Lizzie and their good friend Jane Herships. Forgoing girl-group gimmickry and fervor, the band’s digital-only debut EP, Little Doods, fleshed out a sound of languid, lo-fi psyche pop redolent of Paisley Underground bands like Opal and Rain Parade. Since releasing the EP in April 2011, the band have steadily honed their sound around New York and readied their first long-player, In Limbo.

Recorded in summer 2011 in a barn in rural Connecticut and engineered by Jen Turner of Here We Go Magic, In Limbo keeps the band grounded in their own world of psychedelia while heightening fidelity and giving songs the room to take shape.
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.
