Wire Spine is a Post-Industrial/Dark-Wave duo formed in Vancouver, Canada, in 2015. Founding members Robert Katerwol and Jesi Tekionwake compose on a variety of digital and analog synthesizers and drum machines. Wire Spine conjures up brooding beats amidst dark melodies and haunting synth leads. Jesi’s lyrics, although bizarre and enigmatic, are delivered raw and unapologetically. They channel years of emotional discontent, dealings with past traumas, and a present hatred for mundane life struggles. In 2016 Wire Spine toured across Europe, and most recently in 2017 across western USA. They have shared stages with a variety of acts such as 3TEETH, Odonis Odonis, Uniform, Drab Majesty, Wulf Band, Severed Heads, and many others.
