Biography

Band

We are "The Artakees"!
The Artakees are a Garage Punk Band from Dusseldorf and Essen. They formed in spring 2018 and play a mixture of classic Garage Rock and modern Power Pop. Their guitar riffs are reminiscent of the legendary The Kinks, the bass sound and the compact grooves may call The Sonics to mind. By dint of their singer's bluesy voice The Artakees create a combination of catchy melodies with fuzzy guitars and the untamed energy of Medway Punk.

The Artakees are:

Alex - vocals
Marc - guitar
Flo - guitar
Niklas - bass guitar
Joern - drums
