Diving into Nonfiction, the debut record from multi-instrumentalist Sara Abdelbarry under the nom de plume Teen Idle, and fans of those charming Indie Pop singles that preceded the album immediately get a treat in the form of the 1-2-3 punch of “Saccharine”, Birthday Cake”, and “Norway” all in a row to start as a refreshing reminder of why they’re here in the first place.
