TEKE::TEKE

TEKE_TEKE_Promo_Pic_3.jpg

Taking their name from a Japanese urban legend, TEKE::TEKE began as an homage to legendary Japanese guitarist Takeshi “Terry” Terauchi. Composed of musicians from well-known Montreal bands (Pawa Up First, Patrick Watson, Boogat, Gypsy Kumbia Orchestra, and Dynamo Cleoptara), the band quickly came into its own by blending Japanese Eleki surf-rock with elements of modern music that include shoegaze, post-punk, and psych rock, as well as Latin and Balkan influences. They use standard rock gear alongside traditional Japanese instruments (shinobu flute, shamisen, taisho koto) to take a fresh look at the rising electric future.

TEKE::TEKE kicked things off on the main stage with a jammy blend of surf, psych and J-rock. The band transitioned smoothly from 60’s eleki songs to modern compositions blending a variety of genres. Their greatest asset is their diversified instrumentation. The trombone and flute brought their sound to places a typical psych band can’t go.

[TEKE::TEKE] delighted the audience with their up tempo psychedelic jams and slower interludes, demonstrating mature musical sensibilities and a knack for song structure indicative of artists far beyond their years.
— Keep MTL Weird
Exclamations de flûte shinobue, post-rock, trombone triomphal, projections psychédéliques et forts accents noise se brassent dans ce tourbillon qui met peu de temps avant de happer une foule qui sue déjà à grosses gouttes.
— CISM
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 (quatre des sept membres sont d’origine japonaise), 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.
