Ambient house duo Teengirl Fantasy have released a video and advance single to promote their sophomore album, "Tracer". The single, “End,” is an icy alternative to summer club jams that chills the senses and numbs the brain quite nicely. Teengirl Fantasy (musicians/programmers/producers Nick Weiss and Logan Takahashi) met while students at Oberlin College and bonded over a shared love of electronic music, specifically classic techno and house tracks. The labels True Panther Sounds and Merok jointly released their debut LP, 7AM, in the fall of 2010. The album won praise from tastemakers Pitchfork and XLR8R.
As a follow up, "Tracer" is distinguished by being completely free of samples and features guest vocalists including Animal Collective’s Panda Bear, Romanthony and Laurel Halo. Teengirl Fantasy states “The album is sonically maximal and symphonic, with heavily layered songs containing multiple elements.”
"Tracer" will be released 21 August by True Panther Sounds in North America in conjunction with R&S in Asia, Australia and Europe. Teengirl Fantasy will be touring EU through the end of July and will play select U.S./Canadian dates in August. Tracer track listing: 1. Orbit 2. EFX feat. Kelela 3. Eternal 4. Pyjama feat.
