Artane, County Dublin
When deciding on what to call the band, a dart was thrown at a map in 2016. It landed on the Moroccan city of ‘Tanjier’.
Since then Tanjier have brought their electro indie-pop to the likes of Other Voices, Electric Picnic and Forbidden Fruit. With unique audiovisual and light shows, Tanjier have gained a reputation as one of the most exciting Irish live acts.
Tanjier's sound has the same energy found in LCD Soundsystem’s music. Their indie-pop melodies are influenced by artists like LANY or Sigrid, and their ambient guitar tones are reminiscent of The XX or Foals.
Tanjier have received national airplay, including live sessions on RTÉ 2FM and Today FM. 3 of their singles have been playlisted on 2FM. They have also played prominent venues all over Ireland, supporting the likes of Sorcha Richardson, The Strypes and Ryan Sheridan.
Tanjier's songs explore ideas like youth, love and nostalgia. Their upcoming release, ‘Miles’, was written about the difficulties of long distance relationships after Tommy’s partner moved to Abu Dhabi in September for work. It will be available on July 13, 2018.
Tanjier are Mick Killen, Ronan Lynch, and Tommy Buckley, based in Dublin.
