MOKB Exclusive + Free EP : Tereu Tereu : Savage Love

One of the biggest beefs leveled against this year’s SXSW was the continuing trend of big name acts muscling in on what started as an indie event. (cough cough Kanye) For that reason, and in keeping with our policy of championing the underdog, we’ll be sharing some of SXSW’s unsung heroes over the next couple weeks. First up is Tereu Tereu, a DC-based progressive rawk trio who overcame illness and a crappy early afternoon timeslot to light a fire under MOKB’s The Glitter Taco Smoosh Party at SXSW, both on their own, and as backing unit for their pal, the enchanting Carol Bui.

The trio combines patented DC post-punk with Taureg desert music, the end result of which is both powerful and slightly unnerving, and provides optimal backing for the darker themes the band is exploring in their newest material. MOKB is privileged to premiere Savage Love, a scathing denouncement of recent gay bullying incidents and their tragic aftermaths. Savage Love is the lead track of the band’s new NW EP, which will officially see the light of day on April 5th, but which you can download for free in exchange for an email address.
