The Dublin based Tanjier hail from all over Ireland and their blend of Alt-pop, Indie Rock, Folk and Funk and won them wide acclaim.

It’s a long time since they met either at college or teaching in Uganda but the group have released some beautifully dark singles this year and follow up “Sunrise” with the heartwrenching “Misfit Hour”. Taking to the darker synth laden side of the spectrum the group explore themes of depression and grief. But without that they produce beautiful music to watch the sun go down. Moody, synth poppy and deliciously dark the band released their debut EP “Sunrise” July 31st available on Spotify or Soundcloud.

You will get your own chance to see Tanjier play live as they have just beaten out 400 contestants for the coveted Play the Picnic competition hosted by RTE2fm giving them the opportunity to play on the well known Cosby stage at Electric Picnic. My advice, go check them out before the rest of the world falls in love with them.
