Dream pop / Indie folk / Singer Songwriter




Dream-pop duo teepee have announced their upcoming album Where the Ocean Breaks, slated to drop on 31 January 2020 via Springstoff. The album was recorded at the Aurora Studios in Vienna together with producer Tom O. Marsh. Their previous single ‘No Reason’ was released to acclaim, and quickly went on to feature on popular Youtube channel Mr Suicide Sheep, racking up over 216 thousand plays to date, before being added to Spotify's Indie Radar Playlist. The Prague-based duo has racked up over 200 thousand Spotify streams, seen support from Son Of Marketing, were nominated by Radio Wave ́s export initiative Czeching and have shared the stage with names like Jesse Ware, Seafret, Oh Wonder, Peter Bjorn and John or Laurel. teepee have played numerous shows in the United Kingdom, Austria, Germany, Slovakia and Poland including Enea Spring Break, Waves Vienna, Nouvelle Prague, Rock For People, Sázavafest, Colors of Ostrava and Reeperbahn Festival.

teepee is the spellbinding collaboration between singer-acoustic guitarist Miroslav Patočka (Mason) and singer-electric guitarist Tereza Lavičková. The duo met in high school and began making waves on the Czech independent music scene in 2015. Tereza began playing classical guitar at age 6, and Mason played a host of different instruments before settling on the guitar. The duo have since released a debut album and an EP.

Inspired by acts like RY X, Nick Drake, Son Lux, and Sigur Rós, teepee's sound is defined by intoxicating vocal harmonies, with Miroslav's gentle acoustic guitar enhanced by fragile notes from Tereza’s electric guitar. Subtle samples and synthetic embellishments provide a bed for their melancholic, confessional English lyrics - with elements of their sound drawing parallels to the likes of Daughter, Bon Iver, and Aurora.

Where the Ocean Breaks is a collection of tracks offering sober ruminations on life, society and longing. Torrential emotion is what truly defines the release, and is taken to an almost palpable extent, while each song is artfully infused with a sense of hope. Simple, refined melodies and candid lyrics characterise Where the Ocean Breaks, demanding and rewarding total immersion in its inspiring narrative.
