Boomkat Product Review:
Nico Teen is the solo venture of Israeli singer/songwriter/electronc artist Zohar Shafir. As with the 'Demo' tracks on her 2 Trick Pony EP, the songs on Workshop are bafflingly short, expiring long before they've outstayed their welcome. The homespun DIY feel of Shafir's work is at its most impressive on tracks like 'F*cked Heart' or 'Run & Hide', both of which display an unorthodox grasp on melody and composition whilst projecting a sense of energy that far transcends the super-lo-fi recording conditions. The only real complaint you could lodge at the Nico Teen output is that it's all over far too soon. Recommended.
