Based out of Chicago, Anteeter (Mike Kelley) is a 22-year-old singer, songwriter, producer, and composer signed to Chicago label: True Groovy Media. His debut single, I Am A Slow Joe, premiered February 4th, 2022, and was featured on the original motion picture, the Party’s Over (along with other scoring by Anteater), which has over 54,000 followers on TikTok. Anteeter’s brilliant cacophony of blaring synths and raunchy vocals masterfully engages audiences with a sonic punch to the gut. A style completely of its own, the sarcastic, potent lyricism in combination with synth-heavy, wildly, energetic instrumentation, feels somewhat like a combination of the Yves Tumor, Radiohead and M83.

Have to scratch my head a lot to think of a better anthemic blend of synthwave with indie pop, than of the latest “master-banger” release from Anteeter! A deranged sonic experience, that will blow your mind!” - Last Day Def
It’s really interesting, I feel like I haven’t heard anything else like this, yet…it makes me feel like I’m the main character in a really good video game. Especially in Slow Joe, the synths are so delirious and dramatic, it’s so intense in the coolest way possible. Definitely excited to see what comes next.” - Above Language
