American electronic duo Teengirl Fantasy will release their first album, called 8am, on Mike Paradinas’s record label on March 24th.
It is their first full-length album since 2012’s Tracer, though its title seems to suggest that it will be a natural follow-up to 7am, the band’s 2010 breakout effort. East Coast rapper Khalif Jones a is confirmed collaborator on the album.
Planet Mu says that 8am is Teengirl Fantasy’s “most introspective and most abstracted work so far”, capable of “immersing the listener in a gently invigorating space.”
New album cut “Star-rise” demonstrates the band’s increasing rhythmic and melodic complexity, offsetting a dancefloor pulse with cascading synth and rich tom drum textures.
