!! OMG, listen to a new Teengirl Fantasy song: "End" !!
Psyched-out dance outfit Teengirl Fantasy are releasing their sophomore album Tracer next month. Duo Nick Weiss and Logan Takahashi take a cerebral approach to house and techno that does away with predictable beat patterns while fortunately retaining those ever-essential histrionic diva vocals -- as they did on fantastic 2010 single "Cheaters" -- that we love so much.
(Indeed, Weiss was also behind H.U.N.X.'s mega-gay anthem "Can A Man Hear Me?")
Their new album promises to be "sample-free" and will feature the unique vocal stylings of Panda Bear, Daft Punk's "One More Time" collaborator Romanthony, Laurel Halo, and Kelela. A press release tells us to expect "a wacked version of the pop format" that is "sonically maximal and symphonic." Have a listen to new song "End" below:
Tracer is out on August 21 via True Panther Sounds in North America and via R&S in Asia, Australia and Europe. Check out Teengirl Fantasy's 2012 tour dates after the jump!
