To support the release of TEEN’s second full-length record The Way and Color, Pitchfork Advance is streaming the album in its entirety.

Due April 22 on Carpark Records, The Way And Color shows the young group  shifting directions with their distinctly modern, R&B-informed pop. Searching for inspiration following their last album, the band’s three sisters – lead singer Teeny Lieberson, keyboardist Lizzie Lieberson and drummer Katherine Lieberson – found direction from a simple lineup tweak, joining with bassist Boshra AlSaadi to mine a new side of the band’s sound.

What emerged was the ambitious scope of The Way And Color. Recorded over a ten-day session in upstate New York, the band infuses their brooding pop with minimalist beats and complex harmonies, inspired by D’Angelo and Erykah Badu’s classic R&B.
