Good Fruit is the fourth album by TEEN. The band have trimmed down to a core three-piece of sisters Teeny, Lizzie and Katherine Lieberson for the release, with Boshra AlSaadi contributing to songs before leaving to pursue a solo career. It’s a harmony and hook-laden synthpop album that deals with loss, specifically the death of the sisters’ father, capitalism and womanhood. Limited coloured vinyl and CD on Car Park.

7/10 Will Staff review, 27 February 2019

TEEN deliver bright, brash pop with an experimental edge on this, their fourth LP. The band is made up of sisters Teeny, Lizzy, and Katherine Lieberson and this shows in the seamless interplay of instruments and vocals that make up this album. Good Fruit could easily be soulless, especially considering how almost all of the instruments are electronic, but they easily navigate away from this using weird distortion, off-kilter synth lines, and unsettling samples to humanise the music.

The group really hit their stride with the third song ‘Only Water’, a synthpop banger with a chorus that’ll stick in your head for hours. When synthpop like this is good, it’s absolutely brilliant. ‘Putney’ too is a perfect penultimate track. The band call it a ‘slinky, bassy bop’ which is better than anything I could come up with to describe it so we’ll leave it there. Both these songs are a little bit like Goldfrapp with their dirty synth bass and simple, direct percussion, and are the best moments of the album. Good Fruits’ mostly electronic style is disrupted somewhat by the last song, ‘Pretend’. It’s an odd combination of acoustic piano (which sounds all the more out of place, owing to how synthy this album is), majestic, squalling guitar feedback, and drums you may have heard on a 70s soul track; super!

For the pop posturing, Good Fruit remains somewhat experimental and beguiling, falling into a canon already occupied by Goldfrapp and Lucius of synthpop bands that make clever, expansive pop music you can cut the rug to; I can’t wait to see what TEEN do next.
