"NEEDSHES Perfectly Capture Teenage Obsession on "Love"(premiere)"

"Opening with colorful, see-saw synths, the song quickly locks into a tight groove as a distorted, funky riff playfully dances around frontman Otabek Salamov's lyrics." - PopMatters

"Inbox Jukebox Presents: NEEDSHES’ New Track “Pain”"

"Pain' takes you on a journey through emotional turmoil, using intense synths to make sure all you can think about is the beat and the story it creates."

Another review about the song U Babe: "The pop-blues feels of 'U Babe' are an entire mood with a hip-hop groove." - idobi Radio


"U Babe" lacks nothing, everything is in its place to plunge us into a pleasant and successful musical retreat. - IGGY Magazine (France)

NEEDSHES is the alt/rock band founded by prolific songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and producer Otabek Salamov originally from Uzbekistan. With a musically diverse experience in mind, he conceptualized the ideology of NEEDSHES in 2013. Someone once described them as a balancing act between the moody vibe of The Neighbourhood, with dainty anthems reminiscent of The Killers, a bit of the oddball nature of Jack White, and the heartbreaking ballad skillset of Coldplay.

Bek attended the music academy where he was awarded the first price for his precision on clarinet. As a teen, his interests varied, and he was drawn to compose metalcore. One day he decided to dilute it with melodic undertones. Soon he realized that the switch was something that gravitated to his liking. He decided to create a new project. Bek gathered a traditional rock band line-up. His biggest influences stemmed from James Brown, David Bowie, Queen, The Killers, Jack White, RHCP, U2, a-ha, Coldplay.

Since conception, they have topped the iTunes charts with songs "Time to See," "Anything You Want" which have been featured in international movies (Break ‘19) and TV ads (Lay's, Renault). Having supported You Me At Six live and performed at the FIFA Fan Fest, NEEDSHES have garnered support from idobi Radio, Indiemono, Alt Press, PopMatters, BBC Radio 6 Music. In 2019 they released the third album Truth Power. In 2020 they won the Independent Music Awards (Song Used in Ad Campaign) with "Unbelievable."
