I stumbled upon this band accidentally when browsing Flickr videos. Someone had used a song of theirs as a soundtrack and that was immediately what caught my attention. I proceded to Google them and listen to every song on their Myspace right away. What I love about Teengirl Fantasy’s music is that it is ambient but it doesn’t make me fall asleep. There is an upbeat quality about it, and their low-fi recordings don’t sound half bad, almost intentional. And although this isn’t the most typical mainstream indie-pop, it’s an easy listen.
“Teengirl Fantasy” make dream music. with a beat. on the surface, their song “love don’t live here anymore” is a remix of the much-covered 1978 hit. But it doesn’t just put new drums behind what we already know. The revamp references its source with barely-there samples that seem to be fighting against interference. Because “Love Don’t Live Here Anymore” is one of those songs that everyone knows, even if they don’t know why or where they first heard it. “Teengirl Fantasy” know this, too, and their glazed compositions explore such unconscious nostalgia with eyes half-open (arguably more impressive, their live sets have been known to get brooklyn indie rock kids moving with some semblance of rhythm) – pitchfork
