Teke Teke

TEKE::TEKE: “Barbara”

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 an urban legend about juvenile bullying, subway decapitation, and the haunting that followed, TEKE::TEKE conjures an otherworldly energy with arrangements that evoke everything from Far Eastern film soundtracks to traditional Japanese 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 say “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”!
