Tysk Tysk Task is a Dorchester-based indie rock and folk band, actively playing Boston and the Greater Boston Area. Samantha Hartsel is the frontwoman, with musical partner and Berklee College of Music student Christopher Beller on drums.
Tysk Tysk Task has opened for Hammell on Trial, Dyr Faser, Tera Melos, and Mouse on the Keys, performed with Ken Stringfellow (The Posies), and played shows at Sonia, The Midway, Club Bohemia, ONCE Somerville, and Plough & Stars. Boston Hassle called the band's sound "stripped down rock n’ roll," think of a "raw and female-fronted version of Nirvana Unplugged." Of Samantha, Boston Hassle wrote that with "fantastic" energy, stage presence and powerful dynamics, "she has the chops to nail the softer parts and the intestinal fortitude to give it 110% on the howls."
