Tenek is the latest project from Geoff Pinckney (The Nine, Mesh) (vocals, programming, synths & bass) and Pete Steer (vocals, guitar, bass, synths & programming). Already being cited as one of this year’s most vibrant and infectious electronic acts, the Brighton duo makes classic electronica fused with a contemporary twist.
Tenek released their eponymous debut EP CD in September 2007 before returning to the studio to work on their first long player. Stateless was finally released through the Toffeetones label on the 20th March 2009 under critical acclaim. This is a record filled with great melody and hooks, the perfect marriage of pop and despair wrapped up in an industrial strength electro jacket that is destined to bring mayhem to dancefloors all around the globe. If you grew up listening to synthpop pioneers such as The Human League and Depeche Mode or you prefer dancing to the beats of Cicada, The Crystal Method, Infusion, and Mesh, forget for a moment all the hype that surrounds acts like La Roux or Little Boots and give these newcomers a chance. They may lack in terms of PR but they surely have the tunes.
