Teksti-TV 666 are due release their new LP on September 7th via Svart Records and you can listen to two tracks from it now.
Formed only a few years back, things have escalated rather quickly for this six-headed shoegazing kraut-punk monster.
Armed with no less than four (and sometimes, just sometimes, five) electric guitars, Teksti-TV 666 are nowadays one of the most in-demand live acts in their native Finland, and select performances abroad have caused a bit of a storm as well. After 2016’s Finnish tour with Kvelertak the band have set their sights on Europe, beginning with a tour in Norway. While the five guitars is a point of interest – the real thing of note are their songs. Teksti-TV 666 write very, very, good ones.
Listen to two tracks from the upcoming album, ‘Aidattu Tulevaissus’ and ‘Turbo-Mondeo’, via Spotify now:
The band create an infectious pysch-punk rush that is undeniably exciting even on first listen, as well as pieces that are an ambitious, multi-layered assault that sets Teksti-TV 666 apart from their peers.
Teksti-TV 666 is a band built on contradictions; it is as if Neu! performed Ramones songs, or a shoegazing Hellacopters, it is a heavy but dynamic, measured, wall of noise, a colourful explosion veering off in different directions. Layers of intricate melody. With over 100 shows played in just three years and three critically acclaimed EPs behind them, the band’s reputation is rapidly on the rise.
