Three years in the making, ‘Smoke and Mirrors’ showcases bigger and bolder sounds that have been building from the tenek studio. Each track having a common theme throughout, “Things are not what they seem…” - tenek.This album was designed to offer a variety for both listening audiences (live or on-air), as well as for global sync licensing opportunities. Taking things to a new level, the band enlisted the talents of additional musicians such as: Paul Jackson (bass player from the well-known 80’s British pop band T’Pau), Australian-based Sam Morrison (bass), Michael Steer (bass) and newly added band member Steve Clark (drums/vocals). Since tenek’s second album (‘On The Wire’ – 2010) the 2 recently released EPs (‘Another Day’ and ‘What Kind of Friend?’) were successful tests of the the new direction the band has been taking their music. Since the Devon/Essex tenek debuted in 2007, the electronica duo (aka Geoff Pinckney and Peter Steer) has toured two well-received albums and 9 singles/EP’s. tenek are all about hard grinding electro grooves, a power house of classic British synthesizer pop and stabs of drivingguitar and percussion to bring in a slice of rock edge. Producing a unique crossover which is credible and satisfying to both the cult electro scene while retaining a mass market appeal through the their melodies and hooks.
