Kooba Tercu reveal new single 'Fair Game'
Kooba Tercu the six piece band from Athens, Greece have just revealed 'Fair Game' – the second single to be taken from the bands forthcoming album 'Proto Tekno' – released on 22 May.
The single is released across all streaming platforms this Friday but you can exclusively watch the video now via Cvlt Nation:
‘Fair Game’ is the bands second single from the album and is equal parts groove-driven mantra, red blooded freakout and a voyage into the unknown via coruscating noise and infectious rhythmic drive. It’s the band’s most powerful and captivating track to date with it’s polyrhythmic drive of the ceremonial, the track maintains their unique full-throttle intensity and generosity of character.
‘Proto Tekno’ seamlessly travels from the fuzz-bass headbanger opener ‘Benzoberry’ to the mantric blowout of ‘Qasan’ (assaulting CAN-esque dimensions equal parts caustic and cinematic) and from the sleazy swagger of ‘Cemento Mori’ (redolent of the suave machinations of Girls Against Boys) to the polyrhythmic drive of the ceremonial centrepiece ‘Fair Game’, while maintaining their unique full-throttle intensity and generosity of character. There’s Melvins-style groove to be had on ‘Proto Tekno’ (Kamehameha’) ‘just as much as Beta Band-style songcraft (‘Puppy Pile’) yet these disparate influences coalesce vividly into an invigorating and intimidatingly confident assault on the senses.
‘Proto Tekno’ stands as much as formidable monument to insurrectionary spirit as it does the furious clanguour of six heads in an overheated rehearsal room. It’s a weapon of psychic defence just as much as a love letter to the three ‘R’s of repetition, repetition and repetition. Yet as the ongoing battle against adversity gathers momentum, one thing is for certain - you’ll want Kooba Tercu on your side.
Sadly the bands planned UK live dates have all unsurprisingly been cancelled, but they will definitely be back over once this current situation has an end in sight and venues know when they can reopen.
