Tebi Rex are an alternative hip-hop duo based whose style can fluctuate from catchy, upbeat pop to strikingly dark and complex lyricism. Following the success of 2016's 'Black Enough' their first single of 2017, 'Everything You Say Is A Poem', picked up major radio support from the likes of 2XM, 98FM, RTE Pulse and Beat 102, as did the (sort of) summer anthem 'Icarus'.
In the music video 'She Hated Love Songs II' they and fellow duo Elkin tackled the most iconic romantic moments in film and music history, taking the message of the song one step further by creating a video that not only spoofed your favourite romantic comedies (featuring Taylor Swift, Heath Ledger, Ingrid Bergman, John Cusack and Humphrey Bogart), also acting as social critique of a system that perpetuates unrealistic standards about what love looks and acts like. They're also fairly bitter and petty so there's that too.
2018 began with the release of 'Men Are Trash', making both the UK and Irish Viral Top 50 charts, and has seen a succession of career high points with their debut EP arriving to huge acclaim, follow up ‘Peggy’s Bus’ scoring a radio hit in Ireland, festival appearances at Longitude, Electric Picnic and Indiependence and collaborations with The Blizzards and Eve Belle. Their first album is due in 2019.
