TEKE::TEKE – “Kala Kala
TEKE::TEKE is a seven-piece psychedelic and experimental rock collective hailing from Montreal. “Kala Kala” is billed as the “perfect encapsulation of their distinctly frenzied sound and energy,” which incorporates elements of shoegaze, punk, and 1960’s and ‘70s era psychedelic Japanese soundtracks.
