TEKE::TEKE – Garakuta [Music Video]

Wasn’t aware that the Montreal based band TEKE::TEKE dropped the insane visual music video for Garakuta.
The leading single is taken from their upcoming second album called Hagata which comes out on June 9, 2023 via Kill Rocks Star.
Insane Japanese retro psych-rock music that shows off the creativity of the band.

About the track:
Those are the first lines (translated from Japanese) that come out of singer Maya Kuroki’s mouth in a wild, liquidy growl on ‘Garakuta’ (which translates to ‘junk’).
‘’Indeed, it’s a sort of anthemic song for the rebellion of wastes…’’ says Kuroki.
‘’I imagined a world where everything we throw out came back to protest… And I’m not necessarily only thinking from an environmental perspective, it is rather an analogy for anything or anybody that is cast out of society because they are considered useless by the norm’’.
Think ‘Night of the living Junk’ set to a fast-paced ‘all-in-unison’ riff attack that reinvents ‘Matsuri’ (Traditional Japanese street festival) vibes by injecting it with punk energy, psychedelic blues, guitar played like a shamisen (traditional Japanese 3-string instrument) and the shinobue flute leading this delirious parade!
