CHIRP radio welcomed Brooklyn-based Teen to Township in Logan Square in February immediately following the successful CHIRP trivia night. These four women wasted no time awing the audience with their free-form style of psychedelic layered pop, electro at times. The reverbed guitar chords filled the room as a backdrop to their perfectly sung harmonies. Lead singer, Kristina (Teeny) Lieberson, twiddled with her multi-peddled set-up to deliver a carefully calibrated live experience.
Although it may have proved difficult to play every layer from each song live, the harmonies and catchy song lyrics are what kept the audience intrigued. This rang true for the band’s most popular song, “Electric,” from their 2012 album, In Limbo. There were also several songs that had a much more retro '50s or '60s feel to them, like “Roses & Wine.” Either way the live experience is something that is worth checking out. This is one buzz band that I’m happy to say, lived up to the buzz and kept me wanting more.
