Tebi Rex share ‘Deadman’ ahead of sophomore album

Words: Dylan Murphy

“This is us at our most angry, most frustrated, most hopeless. Which is funny because we made sure it sounded really upbeat. Like someone having a breakdown desperately trying and failing to convince themselves that it’s going to be okay.”

Tebi Rex are fed up. Though life is slowly returning to normal, the pressures of the last 18 months are enough to rattle the most resilient minds and every now and then it’s good to blow off a little steam. In their latest single ‘Deadman’ the pair open with the kind of sonics that would lead you to believe everything is fine before Max Zanga let’s off the handbrake and gets a couple of years of rage off his chest.

The single comes ahead of the second album It’s Going To Be Okay, and continues in the same vein as their collaborative single with ROE ‘Hanging With Trees’.

Speaking on the latest effort, Tebi Rex say, “This is us at our most angry, most frustrated, most hopeless. Which is funny because we made sure it sounded really upbeat. Like someone having a breakdown desperately trying and failing to convince themselves that it’s going to be okay.”

Deadman’ follows appearances at SXSW, Eurosonic, the Great Escape and a live performance for The Line Of Best Fit’s ‘Off The Road’ series. The band perform in Dublin’s Opium Rooms on 20 Nov and will be touring the UK and Europe in 2022.
