Indie-pop outfit TEEN will return early next year with a brand-new album, Good Fruit, their follow-up to 2016′ s Love Yes. The Brooklyn-based sisters’ first self-produced account, It arrives on March 1st, 2019 via Carpark.
Good Fruit middles around themes of push for from past traumas, and its result single,” Only Water”, illustrates that perfectly. As the band’s Teeny Lieberson explains in a press release, the carol is about the loss of the trio’s father to lymphoma in 2011. “’Only Water’ tells the story of my experience of my father’s sickness and demise, ” she says.” “It explores the final times that I had with him, as well as the processing of the loss of a mother. As it has been many years since his death, my relationship to losing him has changed. I have been thinking a lot about the idea of belonging and how it can even exist once someone has died. The song questions this principle; if we are all liquid, can’t I have you? Can I be you? Which in, abstractly, is a festivity of letting start. The liberty within oneness as well as nothingness .”
Accompanying the single is a Nova Scotia-set video from head Charles Billot, who films the band as they emerge from the sea, span a grove, and dancing in a flower-strewn field. Despite the somber subject matter, the song is, like much of TEEN’s work, a glittering, spacey slice of propulsive popping distinguished by the sisters’ striking harmonies. Check it out below.
