Kildare-based alternative hip-hop duo Tebi Rex‘s new track tells the story of the band so far and the ‘best and worst year of their lives’, following the success of previous tracks such as ‘She Hated Love Songs II’.

Their EP, Welcome To The Darkest Year Of Our Adventures will be released on Saturday, January 28th.

‘Blue’ is another energetic and playful delivery with rapping that has a canny resemblance to Childish Gambino.


The EP launch takes place in The Workman’s Club on March 10th. Tickets priced at €11+ are available now via

Tebi Rex are ​Matt O’Baoill and Max Zanga from Maynooth, Kildare whose styles take in pop, hip-hop and dance as part of its sound. They were introduced with the charming yet not-quite-there ‘Black Enough’.

‘Everything You Say Is A Poem’ is a more confident outing, a song that mixes low-end rap production and melodic pop sensibilities. Wavy.

Catch Tebi Rex on Thursday at Word Up Collective #12 at Bello Bar with Super Silly, JYellowl and King David.
