The Way And Color proves to be a dramatic redirection in Teen’s sound toward a much more R&B influence, while still maintaining the garage-pop roots.
Lead singer Teeny Lieberson provides a strong vocal performance throughout the album exploring her range with ease.
Layering these complex harmonies with the funky synthesiser, bass lines and horns creates a truly unique sound. Tied Up Tied Down and All The Same in particular standout.
Occasionally it can sound as though they have tried to cram too many ideas into each track, leaving them feeling cluttered and taking away from the message and themes already explored. (JA)
