Tetish, the Tel-Aviv based indie-electro pop band, are delighted to announce the release of their debut self-titled album via Solarie Records and available to purchase now via the band’s Bandcamp.
God Is In The TV premiered the stream of the album exclusively on their site and described the band’s sound as “…ripe with the influence of pop, classical and middle eastern music.”.
The album is characterised by the band’s recent single release, Luck, which showcases their high octane indie sound as snapping drum beats are flanked by the wonderfully delivered vocals of Etan Solomon, rasping guitar and crisp electronic elements. The video for the single premiered on Clash Magazine‘s website.The video for Luck is now available to watch on the Tetish YouTube channel.
Tetish is the brainchild of Etan Soloman and Itai Shitrit who have been active members of the local Tel-Aviv indie music scene for a number years now. Both have released material while working on different projects, but it wasn’t until after the long-time friends started to play around with a few ideas towards the end of 2014 that they discovered they were able to take each other’s music to the next level. This is highlighted perfectly on the album track ‘Glow’, a free download track the band released in May to celebrate the announcement of the forthcoming album release.
18 months on and the pair have achieved a dynamic sound perfectly encapsulated on their debut album, with a medley of influences from pop and rock all the way through to classical and middle eastern music, giving Tetish a deep, rich, complex and ultimately unique sound. Openers Luck and the aforementioned ‘Glow’ draw comparison with classic artists such as Laura Mvula as well as contemporary musicians like Jessie Ware, whereas Shipwreck explores the band’s pop/rock leanings and is a nod to influences ranging from The Cardigans to Bat For Lashes. Salomon explains “the album is about the longing for self-fulfilment, about the struggle between reality and our hopes, dreams and ideals, in life, in art and in relationships.”
Both Salomon (vocals/keyboards) and Shitrit (keyboards/vocals) are classically trained musicians which becomes apparent on the record as they showcase their skills through the quality of their musicianship and arrangements. Their sound is further enhanced by Nir Shlomo (guitars/vocals), Noam Shacham (bass/vocals) and Daniel Azta (drums/vocals) who joined from Shitrit’s previous band Kalbey Ruach and are noted for their session work with bands such as Eatlitz, Brain Candies and Lola Marsh respectively.
Tetish are intensely determined to expose the world to their sound as they attempt to reach and relate to as many people as they possibly can. It’s been a great start for the band as their demos were picked up by some of the biggest local radio stations as well as being picked up for CMW in Toronto, CMJ in New York as well as gaining support from the likes of Clash, The Vinyl District, The Revue and Little Indie Blogs. Tetish have been in the UK to promote their album release with appearances in Brighton as well as at WOMAD Festival. You can catch the band’s final two shows in London at the following venues:
2nd August – AlleyCat – London 3rd August – The Dublin Castle – London
Tetish‘s debut self-titled album Tetish is out now via Solarie Records and is available to purchase via the band’s Bandcamp.
