Hailing from the colorful suburbs of Tashkent, NEEDSHES is an independent alternative rock band founded by singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Otabek Salamov.
Beck devoted himself to music from early childhood. He attended a music academy and was a number one awarded clarinetist in his home country at the age of 14. However, he spent his time as a teenager performing metalcore with his band, up to the decision to create melodic indie rock.
He performed his first gigs with the set up "vocal, guitar and MacBook pro." Later in 2013, he gathered a full rock band around his project with the intention of creating true authentic rock music as his favourites at that time were The Killers, U2, Coldplay, Muse, Nirvana.
Beck changed several line-ups before he found like-minded band members guitarist Ivan Petukhov and drummer Alex Manakhov. Together they began active gigging and fascinated local concert venues, festivals, and city events.
Their single "Time to See" charted on iTunes top Alternative, racked up a Renault car commercial, and five awards from American songwriting contests. Their music is in a soundtrack to an international movies, sitcoms, and TV shows.
Someone once accurately described their sound as "alternative with funk, punk, blues and soul flourishes, balancing between the moody atmosphere of The NBHD and dainty anthems of The Killers with a bit of the oddball nature of Jack White and the heartbreaking ballad skill of Coldplay." Our EPK here
