TEKE::TEKE

PSYCH / JAPANESE SURF-ROCK 

Bringing together musicians from projects such as Pawa Up First, Patrick Watson, Sonido Pesao and Gypsy Kumbia, TEKE TEKE was first an homage to legendary Japanese guitarist Takeshi ‘Terry’ Terauchi. While keeping their J-Rock roots, TEKE TEKE has quickly evolved into a band of its own by blending Eleki with elements of modern music such as shoegaze, post-rock and noise. DISTORSION will host the launch of Jikaku, a debut EP that encompasses both their live acumen and intricate songwriting.

MUSIC

PRESS

Though immediately recognizable as surf rock, Teke Teke’s sound is a diverse one, drawing from traditional Japanese music, late 60s metal and soul. The group’s trombonist gave their sound a welcome fullness, while the flute added a wistful element.
— The Concordian
Trombone, flûtes, claviers et guitare surf s’échangent la politesse dans une atmosphère manga méga vintage.
— M WEBZINE
Mariant des influences (respectives) qui vont du post-punk au noise en passant par le folk, le classique, les musiques latines, balkaniques et bien sûr nippones, Teke Teke est un hommage à Takeshi Terauchi dans le fond plus que dans la forme, une entité qui ratisse aussi large que le grand guitariste nippon et qui propulse son œuvre à grands coups de riffs acérés dans le 21e siècle, offrant une pérennité que sans doute le principal intéressé n’aurait jamais osé espérer.
