Dubuque, Iowa – Telekinetic Yeti, the Iowa-based duo of Alex Baumann (guitar/vocals) and Rockwel Heim (drums), have shared a new, animated video for the song »Beast« (watch it here) from the band’s Tee Pee Records’ debut, »Primordial«.
The duo share the larger theme behind the track: “»Beast« is a reflection on societal disillusionment and the inherent desire to escape the cyclical trap of wage slavery. Acknowledging that these empires are built on sand as well as the human need to escape the tentacles that bind us through mindless, obligatory, financially-centered routines facilitated by hypnotic black magic.”
Telekinetic Yeti have spent the past year-plus on the road supporting the well-received, 11-song »Primordial«, including multiple headlining treks and a stint with Weedeater. The band is in the midst of their final 2023 tour dates, playing today at Maggie Meyers in Huntsville, AL. J.D. Pinkus opens on all remaining shows.
»Primordial« was produced by Phillip Cope (Kylesa, Baroness). Revolver described Telekinetic Yeti as “a two-piece that sound like an army,” Metal Injection declared “the riffs are non-stop and huge,” and the Austin Chronicle noted that the pair are “a power duo… that fills out the stage with more full stacks than members, emitting an Elder-meets-High On Fire style of psychedelic sludge.”
