While students at Oberlin College, Nick Weiss and Logan Takahashi connected over a shared love of classic house and techno records that prompted them to make, "some kind of dance music that wasn't just emulating what we were hearing." The duo formed their music organically, improvising over loops that eventually materialized into full-fledged compositions. Rather than relying on triggering loops, or quantization, Teengirl Fantasy's music has always been performed and composed live, resulting in a form of discourse between the band and their instruments. The result is a-typical for electronic dance music- colorful, maximalist textures and tones that move along with a driving rhythm yet still retain a distinctly human and emotional core.

After the release of their sophomore LP Tracer from August 2012, Teengirl Fantasy released a new EP 'NUN' in November 2013. Consisting of four tracks, 'Nun' showcased their ability to mix different genres while staying true to their original free-form sound. "Eric"touched on genres such as drum'n'bass, jungle, and footwork, while title track "Nun" was a sprawling, yet percussion heavy club journey, building in verve throughout. "Platinum" simulated a soaring feeling with airy synths that are offset by sparse hard-edged percussion. The EP closed with "Nun Beat," a variation of "Nun" played at a different tempo to create a screwed R&B beat. Overall, Nun was reminiscent of Teengirl Fantasy's earlier works while stepping into new territory and giving insight into where their sound was headed.

Following last year's journeying NUN EP, Teengirl Fantasy have returned with Thermal on Break World Records. Tracing threads from their previous deconstructed dance floor works into thrilling new directions, the Thermal EP is the duo's most mature and cohesive work to date. It features four new songs: two instrumentals that showcase the duo's sensual and intuitive way with texture, and two prime-time vocal tracks featuring the new queen of underground Korean R&B, Hoody, and rising NYC artist Lafawndah.
