Tetish is the brainchild of Etan Salomon and Itai Street. The duo have been active members of the local Tel-Aviv indie music scene for a number years now, both having released material while working on different projects, but it wasn’t until after the long-time friends started to play around with a few ideas towards the end of 2014 that they discovered they were able to take each other’s music to the next level.

18 months on and the pair have achieved a dynamic sound perfectly encapsulated on their debut album, with a medley of influences from electronic pop, all the way through to classical and middle eastern music, giving Tetish a deep, rich, complex and ultimately unique sound.

Both Salomon (vocals/keyboards) and Street (keyboards/vocals) are classically trained musicians which becomes apparent as they showcase their skills through the quality of their musicianship and arrangements. Their sound is further enhanced by Nir Shlomo (guitars/vocals), Noam Shacham (bass/vocals) and Daniel Azta (drums/vocals) who joined from Street’s previous band Kalbey Ruach and are noted for their session work with bands such as Eatlitz, Brain Candies and Lola Marsh respectively.

It’s been a great start for the band as their demos were picked up by some of the biggest local radio stations as well as being selected  for CMW in Toronto, CMJ in New York . Fantastic feedback and comparisons to Lucius, Tune Yards, Bat For Lashes and St.Vincent brought the resolution to launch a crowd funding campaign that will enable the recording of the band's debut album. The campaign was a huge success, pre selling Tetish's debut to over 250 fans. 

The album received attention and reviews from various blogs and websites (Clash, The Vinyl District, Cougar Microbes, Drowned in Sound, Purple Melon and more), in the UK, US, Canada, Germany, Sweden and more. Tetish were invited to play WOMAD UK festival, alongside a UK debut and a Germany tour last spring. 


Tetish are determined to expose the world to their sound as they attempt to reach and relate to as many people as they possibly can. Therefore, as from the beginning of 2017, Tetish are TLV and London based. 

The band is currently working on new material for their next release, and finalising dates for their upcoming Europe tour, to be announced soon.
