The DeeteesBand Name: The Deetees

The DeeTees are a Punk Rock band, from Glasgow. They describe themselves as “a bunch of chancers who sit about fighting about religion and politics, and then write songs about the arguments!”

They have just released their debut EP ‘You were right’, which features the songs ‘Exclusive exclusions’, ‘You were right’, ‘The intimidation song’, and ‘Effects and belief’.

The Ep delivers a mixture of mid and up tempo tracks with a real Punk rock sound. With lyrics about politics, media, and obsession with image, laid over catchy rhythms and decent beats. ‘You were right’ has some sweet guitar riffs, but the stand out track for me has to be ‘Effects and Belief’. It starts off slowly with a great guitar intro, then it picks up the tempo and the drums kick in producing what I think is the best track on the EP.

‘You were right’ is available to stream and buy on the bands website now at www.thedeetees.co.uk
