Tenek is the electronic project of Peter Steer and Geoff Pinckney, formed in the UK in June 2007. They have produced and released two albums and nine singles/EPs. Tenek is all about hard-grinding electro grooves: it’s a powerhouse that combines classic British synthpop with driving rock guitar, producing a unique crossover which satisfies the cult electro scene while retaining mass-market appeal through its melodies and hooks.
This high-energy act has a considerable following in the UK, Europe, and Russia and has toured with artists including John Foxx, Gary Numan, Toyah, The Human League, Republica, De/Vision, A Flock Of Seagulls, Iris and Assemblage 23. They’ve had radio airplay on syndicated programs, including Passport Approved (U.S.),BBC Introducing (Essex, UK), and Amazing Tunes (Scotland), as well as the growing list of independent radio stations, college stations and podcasts around the globe. Following the release of the digital EP What Kind of Friend in September 2015, Distortion Productions is beyond excited to release Tenek’s upcoming third studio album, Smoke and Mirrors, in January 2016.
