Bio

Dreampop / indie-folk band teepee first appeared on the Czech independent music scene in 2015. A high school in the Bohemian city of Pilsen provided the backdrop to the spellbinding collaboration between singer-acoustic guitarist Miroslav Patočka (Mason) and singer-electric guitarist Tereza Lavičková. Taking to stages across the Czech Republic teepee immediately began making waves with their mesmerizing performances, quickly solidified their position as a band to watch. Teepee's sound is defined by intoxicating vocal harmonies, with Mason's gentle acoustic guitar enhanced by fragile notes from Tereza’s electric guitar. Subtle samples and synthetic sounds provide a bed for their melancholic, confessional English lyrics.
Their debut album 'Albatross' swiftly followed in April 2016, produced by Mikoláš Růžička (Piano, Republic of Two) & after the success of singles ‘Albatross’ and ‘All I Want’, they returned to Růžička to record the urgent, intimate 'Mirrors' EP in 2017. Released on the domestic label Tranzistor, it showcased a more experimental, thoughtful and mature approach.
In 2018 teepee began to work on a new album at the Viennese Aurora Studios with a British producer Tom O. Marsh, who previously played in bands IAMX and HVOB. Singles 'Running Around' and 'Around It' were already released as a part of the new material. The whole album should be released in the fall 2019.
“The new album will be full of new soundscapes. Thanks to our producer Tom, we explored new perspectives and possibilities. I think that we brought our music to the next level. The new songs have lot of new elements but we tried to keep there our emotions that were and are the basis of what we do.” says Tereza
“As in the previous albums, the new one will be filled with our opinions on society and the reflection of our personal feelings and latest experiences. However, compared to the previous records the common theme of the whole album is a search for hope.” adds Mason.

In the four years of existence, the band gained popularity among fans and music critics, including the radio stations Expres FM, Radio 1, Radio Wave and Slovak Radio FM. The band also performed concerts in Austria, Germany, United Kingdom, Slovakia, Poland and throughout the Czech Republic, including the leading festivals (Rock For People, Sázavafest, Colors of Ostrava or Grape Festival in Slovakia), and also supported more famous names like Seafret, Oh Wonder, Peter Bjorn and John or Laurel.
The burgeoning critical acclaim, nomination in the Radio Wave´s export contest “Czeching”, slot at the showcase festivals Enea Spring Brake, Waves Vienna and Nouvelle Prague gave teepee the boost to expand their fan base well beyond the Czech borders.

“In the beautiful yet haunting 'Around It'I, teepee builds on the journeying aura from mystic guitars as the track reciprocates over the conversing exchange between its beaming vocal sweetness and subtle whir.”
At Cost Magazine, June 2019

“The concert with the Czechs of teepee was without a doubt the most pleasant experience of the festival. This is a band that really knows it’s craft. Teepee, which consists of Tereza Lavickova and Miroslav ‘Mason’ Patocka, has stirred up a well tasting musical cocktail that is a mix of dream pop and indie folk. That makes them, at the same time, a familiar, secure and unique acquaintance. I’ve listened to their debut album shamelessly since I got home – and it’s still the perfect soundtrack for my morning bike ride.”
Regnsky, October 2018

“Their rendition of indie folk is very fragile, dreamy and intimate - exactly the way it should be. It will capture your heart and explode with a mixture of emotions that have hitherto been hidden deep within you.”
Report magazine August 2016
