Artane, County Dublin
Tanjier are a major upcoming band in the Irish music scene. They won this year's 2FM and Oxfam's, 'Play the Picnic' competition. They have been selected as 'Irish Artist of the Week' by Dublinconcerts.ie and were selected by Whelan's and State Magazine as one of 30 Irish acts to watch in 2016. They played the Cosby stage at Electric Picnic this year.
Tanjier have been described as 'an incredible live act' (Kieron Black, RTÉ 2XM) with a sound that is 'so dark and alluring, haunting and rife with meaning' (Dublinconcerts.ie). They blend synthpop, indie rock, electro-pop and funk, 'resulting in a sound that feels both modern and yet has all the elegance and grace of a bygone era' (Dublinconcerts.ie).
Their debut EP, 'Sunrise', was released in July 2016 and can be found on Spotify.
