Post-Hardcore / Sludge / Post / LATVIA
The Latvians TESA were among the first ones to combine the moods of sludge and post-hardcore in the region. Trends come and go, but this trio from Riga is still going. After fifteen years, TESA is still dark, intriguing, unconventional, and relevant.
Crushingly heavy guitars interchange with painful shrieking in TESA; their creativity is rather hard to swallow but at the same time it’s so attractive in its innovation, emotional spectrum, and psychedelic turns. Being constructed on a foundation of punk virtues, TESA is not for the masses but will leave a deep impression on picky listeners.
