Teengirl Fantasy: "We're Too Old for EDM"

Nick Weiss and Logan Takahashi, the duo that comprise Teengirl Fantasy, met at Oberlin College, connecting over their favorite old-school techno albums while Nick studied film and Logan attended the college's conservatory.

Taking a break from their final semester to tour with Animal Collective, the project became a full-time pursuit for Weiss and Takahashi when their debut album, 2010's 7AM, was released to critical acclaim.

Since then, they've released a full-length follow-up, 2012's Tracer, as well as a new EP titled Nun. This month, Nick and Logan will take over The Garret. So we here at Crossfade chatted with the Fantasy boys about electronic dance music, collaborating with Sade, and making friends via the Internet.
