Liverpool has always eschewed what is fashionable when it comes to music, and prefer to set their compass on doing what they feel is right. That compass always seems to find gold, and The Tea Street Band are another nugget that shines on the banks of the Mersey.
The band – made up of Timo Tierney (vocals, guitar), Nick Otaegui (bass, vocals), Lee Smith (guitar, synth) and Dom Allen (drums) – have just released their second album, ‘Frequency’.
The Tea Street Band take their synths and beats, Liverpool’s unique unquenchable thirst for melody, chorus, hook and build to a euphoric rush. It’s easy to see why Mick Head called them his favourite new band! Front man Timo said of the album:
“The writing process was different than the first album. We wrote it together, with all of us having a massive input on each song. The title and the artwork (photo By John Johnson, designed by Dom Foster), it’s all of ours. We have all pushed each other musically and I think it really shows on the record.”
The Tea Street Band followed the album’s release with a UK headline tour, which started with two sold-out nights at Liverpool’s District on November 15 & 16. Forthcoming dates include Glasgow’s famed King Tut’s Wah Wah Hut.
