Tanjier are an alt electro-pop band based in Dublin, Ireland. They formed in 2015 after meeting in university in Dublin.
Tanjier have been described as ‘an incredible live act’ (Kieron Black, RTÉ 2XM). Their music is influenced by the likes of London Grammar and The 1975. Their sound ‘feels both modern and yet has all the elegance and grace of a bygone era’ (Dublinconcerts.ie). They are the current RTÉ 2FM Play the Picnic winners and have been called ‘one of the most hotly tipped acts to appear’ with a sound that is ‘so dark and alluring, haunting and rife with meaning’ (Dublinconcerts.ie).
Their story begins in Dublin where Mickey (Guitar and Vocals) and Tommy (Keys and Vocals) met while in university. They began playing music in empty lecture rooms, and bringing their diverse influences together. When Mickey’s old friend Ronan (Bass and Percussion) was drafted in to play bass, a positive change in dynamics occurred and Tanjier was born.
