Irish alternative hip-hop duo TEBI REX‘s single, ‘Oh It Hurts’ finds the pair taking yet another musical left turn. Aided by long-term collaborator Local Boy and Word Up producer Silent Ghost, the single introduces new elements to their already eclectic sound, as well as live instrumentation for the first time. The track is just one chapter from an album that will once more follow a distinct narrative arc, again marking them out as true musical innovators.
In 2020 the duo released singles, ‘White Boy Of The Month’ and ‘I Got My Whole’ earning praise from the likes of Clash Magazine, The Line Of Best Fit, Earmilk, CMU, Nialler9 and GUAP to name a few. Live online shows followed for Ireland Music Week and AWAL’s collaboration with Liverpool Sound City. The inclusion of ‘I Never Got Off The Bus’ on the soundtrack for the global hit TV series Normal People brought their music to a wider audience around the world, leading to the debut record ‘The Young Will Eat The Old’ breaking one million streams.
Having just joined the FMLY live agency, appearing at the digital ESNS festival and announcing an online show at SxSW, 2021 has already proved to be their year. And with an album to follow they show no sign of slowing down.
