‘a form of discourse between the band and their instruments’. Coo! Does it count if it’s just the keyboardist shouting at the pitchbend wheel for being sticky?
The rest of the description reads like it belongs on the back label of a bottle of Sauvignon, but don’t let us put you off. Teengirl Fantasy, discoursing with their instruments at a (select) venue near you….
Electronic duo Teengirl Fantasy will be returning to the UK and Europe in October for a select number of shows.
Improvising over loops that are then fleshed out and developed into full-fledged compositions, the live exerience constitutes an integral part in the creation of the duo’s music, resulting in a form of discourse between the band and their instruments. The result is a-typical for electronic dance music – colorful, maximalist textures and tones that move along with a driving rhythm yet still retain a distinctly human and emotional core.
