US house converts Teengirl Fantasy will tour their new album, Tracer, in the UK and Europe this Autumn.
The follow-up to 2010′s 7AM, Tracer found the duo of Logan Takahashi and Nick Weiss embracing classic dance music like never before, even roping in Daft Punk collaborator Romanthony for a guest spot. Tracer‘s tracks aren’t obvious club jams though: it’s dream-like house music, distilled and dissolved into an wraithlike slipstream.
According to a press release sent out today, Teengirl Fantasy’s current live show finds the group “improvising over loops that are then fleshed out and developed into full-fledged compositions, resulting in a form of discourse between the band and their instruments. The result is atypical 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.”
