Fresh off their newly released sophomore album, The Way And The Color, Brooklyn experimental pop four-piece Teen treat us to their new video for “Not For Long”, the album’s first single that dropped in February.
The video is helmed by Swiss director, Roland von Tessin, who’s cloaked his creeping visuals largely in monochrome, shrouded in his trademark dark, bleak futurism. Indeed, when front woman Teeny Lieberson asks, “are we all faceless?” and insists “save yourself before you need to be saved”, she’s addressing real, contemporary techno-sociological concerns.
While the song is among the band’s least fractured and manic, Lieberson appearing as a porcelain face suspended in space over an empty, arid landscape is still a striking visual interpretation of the song. The only bummer here is that we do miss out on the album track’s wonderfully wiry and wiggy coda, but you can catch that on our earlier post on the single release. The Way And The Color dropped just this week on Carpark Records.
