Tebi Rex share debut album ‘The Young Will Eat The Old’

After teasing out singles for the past year, performing in the UK and slowly priming the people of Ireland and beyond, Tebi Rex’s debut album is here.

Following up their 2018 EP ‘Welcome To The Darkest Year Of Our Adventures’, Tebi Rex aka Matt Ó and Max Zanga have released their debut album ‘The Young Will Eat The Old’.

Almost a premeditative warning of the pitfalls of fame and the speed at which subsequent success can vanish, their first effort in the big bad world of albums proves a marked display of growth musically and emotionally speaking.

Presenting the issues at heart in the form of a conceptual piece drawing from Greek mythology, the boys haven’t strayed too far from their overall more pop-leaning sound. However they have simultaneously added a touch of grit sonically and thematically to their output with tracks like ‘Robbin Szn’ and ‘No. 1 Symbol Of Peace’, bringing more aggressive energy.

Enlisting Natalya O’Flaherty to introduce the three acts tightens the sense of narrative of what is ultimately a very cohesive piece.

Explaining the reasoning Max said, “It falls in three acts so there are versions of ourselves that are much further along in their lives. Essentially, it’s a hesitant prophecy.”

A strong showing from one of Word Up Collective’s most prolific acts and another in a growing list of Irish hip hop’s full length albums to be released, it’s reflective of a rapidly growing scene in the Emerald Isle that boasts a varied range of takes on the world’s most popular genre.
