Tanjier are a dark electro-pop band based in Dublin, Ireland. Their music is influenced by the likes of London Grammar, Alt-J, Jack Garratt and The 1975. They are the current RTÉ 2FM Play the Picnic winners. The trio formed in 2015 after meeting in university in Dublin. Tommy (Keys and Vox) and Mick (Guitar and Vox) began playing music in empty lecture rooms, bringing their diverse influences together. When Mick's old friend Ronan (Bass and Percussion) was drafted in to play bass, Tanjier was born.

Currently in the middle promoting their single, 'Yu', Tanjier are touring festivals and venues throughout Ireland this summer. They are releasing their new single, 'Hymn' on the 15th of September. Autumn tour dates to follow.
