TENTA --German (english version below):

Gegründet: 2015

Bereits das selbstbetitelte Erstlingswerk der vier Musiker aus dem Jahr 2016 wusste mit facettenreicher, eindringlicher Rockmusik zu überzeugen. Die unübliche Besetzung von zwei Bassisten erschafft neue musikalische Farbspektren als Basis für ausgefallene Schlagzeug-Grooves und eine einzigartige Stimme. Selbst wenn der Großteil von Tentas Musik nicht besonders konventionell ist, schaffen es die vier Musiker ihre Songs trotzdem zugänglich zu gestalten. So erreicht die 2018 erschienen Single “King of Norway” mit seinem distopischen Hochglanz-Video Publikum weltweit und gewinnt insgesamt 5 Preise auf internationalen Film-Festivals.

Vor allem aber überzeugen TENTA live und lassen einen mit den bereits präsentierten Liedern “LOVE” und “Kallipolis” in die Sphären des neuen Albums “W.E.I.R.D-Subtopia” eintauchen, das am 15. März 2019 veröffentlicht wird.

--English

In 2016 the four musicians of TENTA released a very diverse album of modern rock music. The atypical setting of two bassist creates an intriguing sound spectrum, which is augmented by delicate drum grooves and a very unique and captivating voice. Even though most of their music is not particularly conventional, the musicians still manage to make it accessible for the usual listener. As a result the single “King of Norway” released in 2018 achieved a lot of attention and got awarded on 5 different international film festivals for its outstanding dystopian music video. But most of all TENTA is a very ambitious live band that leads it’s audience to a place of emotional extravaganza. On their latest concerts they also introduced two new songs “LOVE” and “Kallipolis”, which give a striking hint on how their new album “W.E.I.R.D. Subtopia” (released on the 15th of March in 2019) is going to sound like.

--------------------------------------------

A world of concrete and steel doors, where trains growl slowly through shadows and electrical light. heading nowhere but towards the deepest abyss in the human mind. A predator is on his way. Sharp and fickle sounds merge with their massive surrounding. It tells a story of a place, where nature is born anew. Spittelau is a railway station in Vienna and home of the great band Tenta. Four people who gather at this place to preach what they have lived and seen. Two basses, drums, keys, and a synthesizer shape different soundscapes underlined by playful grooves and a voice that guides the listener on his journey.
