BIO

Tanjier have brought their unique electro indie-pop sound and their thrilling live light show to many of the major Irish venues and festivals in 2017. Their contemporary sound, is inspired by London Grammar, Coldplay, The 1975, LCD Soundsystem and Bon Iver.

2017 saw Tanjier close the Other Voices Festival, excite crowds at Electric Picnic, support The Strypes, and sell-out shows across Ireland; including twice in Whelan’s, Dublin. They have received national airplay, including three live performances on RTÉ 2FM. They have gained a reputation as one of the most exciting Irish live acts. They bring energy, anthems and their own custom light/laser shows across the country.

Electronic beats, growling synths, catchy guitar hooks and haunting vocals, Tanjier are modern musical story-tellers. In their lyrics, they have explored ideas like youth, mental health, prostitution and nostalgia. They provide a soundtrack for people living through the ironies of the modern age. Tanjier are Mick Killen, Ronan Lynch, and Tommy Buckley, based in Dublin.

CURRENTLY
All eyes are on the trio as they prepare to release their next single in 2018. The band are also expanding their audio-visual show (lights, lasers and visuals) for their future concerts.
