Tetine's brand new album LET YOUR X's BE Y's is out TODAY!

A wild mix-up of Punk-Funk/New Wave/Post-Punk/Electro featuring a very personal collection of art pop tunes. The first pressing comes with a limited edition bonus track with CSS remix for I go To the Doctor included.

Go get yours from:

‘Soul Jazz have snapped them up and the results are hot’. Dazed & Confused. (recommended albums)

'The album is a breath of fresh air; at times evocative of early Pet Shop Boys, on tracks like What A Gift To Get, and at others conjuring up the template for the joyful sound of new Brazil on Ai Amor/Me So Horny. As a piece it holds together with wit and charm. Kinder than their full-on live shows it pulls you in and holds you with its ever changing flow and colour, never boring, always inventive.’ Nick Tesco / Music Week

'Brazilian duo prone to rithualistic performances headline with a sound that ranges across electro punk, atonal orchestral pieces, baile funk and Miami bass...' Time Out London, Critics Choice.

'Trying to pin down Tetine’s sound is almost an artform in itself . Ingested with their history in mind, ‘Let Your Xs Be Ys’ feels as playful as it is relaxed - soundtracking an artistic project that wears its authenticity, confidence and continuing need for experimentation proudly on its sleeve. Less ‘we do not give a fuck’, more ‘we do not need to give a fuck’ - a crucial difference in a music market riddled with attitude, desperately seeking substance.' Stuart Buchanan, FAT PLANET BLOG

'A Historia Da Garca sounds like a soundtrack for a dystopian flick: acid sounds; cool Portuguese raps, and spooky new wave synths. It's one of the freshest sounds I've heard in ages. I'm dropping the recommended here on originality.' Turntablelab, US

'Art duo Tetine’s pumped-up punk-meets-funk sound and frenzied on-stage antics make them a creative force to be reckoned with. Having released a prolific eight albums and performed everywhere from Sonar to the Whitechapel Gallery, Eliete Mejorado and Bruno Verner are beacons of their native Sao Paulo avant-garde electronic underground.(...) This is the radical duo who have brought Funk Carioca within London’s cultural radar'. Their lyrics may still talk of real-life sex and domesticity but this album is set to be worlds away from the sample-laden funk of their earlier tracks like ‘L.I.C.K. My Favela.' Aimee Farrell, FACT mag

‘Some of the tunes have brilliant 80’s sounding riffs like Let The X be X and Everything Must Die’. Album of The Week, TNT Magazine
