Teengirl Fantasy
    Thursday March 15, 2012 10:30pm - 11:00pm @ Beauty Bar Backyard (617 E 7th St)

    Boasting an almost Google-proof name, Teengirl Fantasy is the project of Nick Weiss and Logan Takahashi. Weiss and Takahashi, who craft an atmospheric yet driving sound -- borrowing from deep house, shoegaze, and other styles -- that makes critics coin terms like “dream-beat,” met during orientation at Ohio’s Oberlin College and began making music together a few weeks later. They put up a MySpace page for Teengirl Fantasy, but it was when their songs were featured on the blog 20 Jazz Funk Greats that they gained an audience. Remixes of artists including tourmates Telepathe and a radically reworked version of Mariah Carey's “Touch My Body,” along with the downloadable EP TGIF and singles on Dick Move and Merok, furthered the buzz around the band. Takahashi and Weiss moved to the Netherlands to study at Amsterdam’s Gerrit Rietveld Academie for four months, but returned to Oberlin for 2010's spring semester. Teengirl Fantasy's full-length debut, 7AM, arrived in September of that year on True Panther/Merok. They have toured around the world and supported Animal Collective, Crystal Castles, and James Blake all in the past year.
