Led by Los Angeles-based brothers Andrew and Daniel Aged, Inc. began as Teen Inc. and debuted in 2010 with a self-released 7" single, â€œFountainsâ€�/â€�Friends of the Night.â€� Both songs carried a charming demo-sounding quality with the inspirations a peculiar amalgamation of early-â€˜80s post-punk and mid- to late-â€˜80s sophisti-pop and R&B. That same year, the Aged brothers assisted Nite Jewel on the title song for her Am I Real? EP. After dropping â€œTeenâ€� from their name, the brothers signed to 4AD, where they released a three-track EP, 3, in 2011. On that release, the late-â€˜80s productions of Jimmy Jam & Terry Lewis and Teddy Riley, as well as the contemporaneous recordings of Prince, seemed to be the primary influences, albeit with a left-field twist. Accomplished musicians, Andrew and Daniel have also recorded and toured with a number of high-profile artists, including Raphael Saadiq, Beck, and Cee Lo Green. ~ Andy KellmanPortions of Content Provided by Rovi Corporation.
