TEKE::TEKE: “Barbara”

Posted by on May 6, 2021

If you’re a fan of the Japanese aesthetic stirred up with psychedelia, punk, and a little bit of the supernatural, look no further than Montreal seven-piece TEKE::TEKE. Taking their name from a slang term for Japanese surf culture connoisseurs, TEKE::TEKE conjures an otherworldly energy with arrangements that evoke everything from Far Eastern film soundtracks to traditional ballads and surf rock.

Tomorrow TEKE::TEKE shares Shirushi, an LP that channels the band’s philosophy of acting with optimism after a cataclysmic event. You won’t have to chant “Teke Teke” five times in the mirror to gain access to Shirushi, but you can certainly familiarize yourself with one of the septet’s strongest ghost stories and rock out to “Barbara”!
