It’s never been easy to know what to expect from a new Teengirl Fantasy track. Over the past three years the culture of electronic producers has gone through huge changes and Teengirl Fantasy has always managed to be flexible with their style without ever clinging to current hype trends. ’EFX’ continues their non-conventional streak while offering their most buzz ready song to date. Featuring the serpentine and sensual vocals of Kelela, ‘EFX’ comes across as Teengirl Fantasy’s version of ‘Wildfire’. It’s weird, dynamic, danceable and could probably become a radio hit without any backlash… or at least minimal backlash.
Teengirl Fantasy are a group that made it big right before the huge influx of producers we currently have flooding the blogosphere. However, since making it big in 2010 they’ve remained relatively quiet allowing smaller producers to start to take the spotlight. ’Motif’ shows the group returning strong with a shiny new sound that takes influences from all over the electronic-music spectrum. Over the course of the track’s 7 minutes, the group manages to twist and shift the same basic song idea into all sorts of psychedelic shapes. The ‘Motif’ single will be dropping later in June off R & S to build up hype for an album they will be dropping later this year.
