Geoff Pinckney & Peter Steer form the duo Tenek are all about hard grinding electro grooves, a power house of classic British synthesiser pop and stabs of driving guitar. They craft these sounds with insanely infectious song writing and strong confident vocals to produce a unique crossover which is credible and satisfying to both the cult electro scene and yet retaining a mass market appeal through the immediacy of their melodies and hooks. Dark and introspective yet rewardingly uplifting and anthemic, this music is for the masses and for the underground and this is why tenek are vital!
