Independent Artist Of The Week: TEES
April 9th 2015
Electro pop dipped in Acid.
Take a jump back to 1980’s Ibiza; Acid House was dripping out of the UK rave scene and down to western Spain, and the eclectic collection of dreamy downtempo mixed with electro pop was just finding its bearings across the Balearic Islands. Somewhere on that island, Lizzy Tillman and Sean Duarte are dropping out and dreaming up some seriously Balearic beats.
Meet TEES; a two-piece from Sydney who bonded over the mutual passion for A Guy Called Gerald and Saint Etienne, and thus, over the summer of 2013; TEES came bounding into the world with a single acid splash.
Squelchy acid house splashes over the dreamy vocals of Lizzy Tillman, while Sean Duarte commands a dreamy electro pop beat. The pair recently premiered the video for their latest single ‘Everyone,’ which you can view below.
Catch TEES for free this weekend (with DJ sets from Jack Shit and Fingertips) at Shithouse at Sing Song – then in June at the Heaps Gay Vivid party!
