One of the most exciting Irish bands of any genre, Tebi Rex have emerged from the country’s acclaimed hip-hop scene to create a stir not only at home but in the US and UK via their high energy live show, radio friendly singles, witty videos and engaging social media presence. Their 2019 debut album The Young Will Eat The Old – released via AWAL on the back of two memorable shows at The Great Escape – was lauded by the likes of The Irish Times, Dan Hegarty, The Line Of Best Fit, Hot New Hip-Hop and Today FM as one of the domestic releases of the year.
Due to embark on an Irish tour as well as making their US debut at SxSW in 2020 before circumstances got in the way, the band busied themselves with the release of two singles in quick succession – ‘White Boy Of The Month’ and ‘I Got My Whole’. Both have received acclaim at home and abroad, with Clash Magazine, The Line Of Best Fit, Earmilk, CMU, SounDigest, Nialler9, Last Day Deaf, GUAP, District Magazine and Hot Press all singing their praises. They played live online shows for Ireland Performs and the Hot Press Young & Emerging series, as well as being invited to perform for AWAL’s collaboration with Liverpool Sound City. The inclusion of ‘I Never Got Off The Bus’ on the soundtrack for global hit TV series Normal People has brought their music to a wider audience around the world, leading the way for a new mixtape in the autumn before another major project in 2021 and a return to the UK for a debut London show.
