The Montreal-based Japanese psych-punk band TEKE::TEKE has joined the Kill Rock Stars family and we are so excited for you all to experience this music.

TEKE::TEKE is a unique beast; a seven-piece band featuring traditional Japanese instruments, flute and trombone alongside raging guitars and a pulsing rhythm section to create a sound reminiscent of 1960’s and 70’s era psychedelic Japanese soundtracks, with a frenetic, modern twist.

For a band that would fit just as comfortably on a Tarantino soundtrack as they do on our DIY punk rooted label, TEKE::TEKE’s fusing of cultures and influences make their debut a must-listen.

Two tracks are out now to celebrate the signing: an energetic cover of Japanese instrumental guitar hero Takeshi Terauchi’s Chidori” and a radio edit of the band’s single “Kala Kala” (‘Clattering’) from an upcoming Spring 2021 album.

Listen to the tracks on all digital platforms.
