Tanjier

Alternative
Artane, County Dublin

Tanjier are the sound of dark electro-pop lurking in the shadows; the sound of isolation in orange dimly lit city streets. They are a trio based in Dublin, Ireland.

Electronic beats, growling synths, syncopated rhythms, catchy guitar hooks and haunting vocals, Tanjier are modern musical story-tellers. In their lyrics, they have explored ideas like prostitution, mental health, youth and nostalgia. They provide a soundtrack for people living through the ironies of the modern age; how people are becoming addicted to social media while forgetting about developing meaningful social relationships. Songs about how people become attached to their vices but detached from reality.

The band’s videos have tackled social taboos like homelessness, mental health issues, coping with grief and our growing addiction to our devices.

Tanjier are Ronan Lynch, Tommy Buckley and Mick Killen
