avatar for TAYMIR


The Dutch four-piece TAYMIR (pronounced Tie-Meer) --- BAS PRINS (Vocals), QUINTEN MEIRESONNE (Bass and Backing Vocals), MIKKIE B WESSELS (Guitar and Backing Vocals), ISAÏ REIZIGER (Drums) --- hail from The Hague in The Netherlands.

The fiery, young group whose modern take on the 60’s rock sound is garnering comparisons ranging from Arctic Monkeys and Franz Ferdinand to The Who released their acclaimed debut full-length PHOSPHENE in their homeland of The Netherlands in late 2013. DIV/UNDIV (Netherlands) described the 13-song set as “Unpolished and daring and fun.” In 2014, the group became a force in their home country and topped the Dutch airplay charts with their single “Aaaaah” while stepping out on the international stage after being invited to open the prestigious London Calling Festival in Paradiso, Amsterdam as the only Dutch band on the bill. Last year, TAYMIR continued to build on the world stage performing at over 40 festivals including The Great Escape (England), Eurosonic Noorderslag Festival (The Netherlands), Berlin Music Week, Reeperbahn Festival (Hamburg), Waves (Bratislava, Slovakia), MaMa (Paris), Culture Collide (Los Angeles) and CMJ (New York). The four-piece also performed at the biggest Dutch festivals Down The Rabbit Hole and Pinkpop sharing the stage with international stars such as The Rolling Stones, Arctic Monkeys, Hozier, the Black Keys, Foals, Ed Sheeran and more. The group’s catchy track “What Would You Say” was hand-picked by the tastemakers Ally McCrae (BBC radio) and Achal Dillon for inclusion on the 2014 New Moons: Volume II compilation by the hip London imprint Killing Moon (a partnership with Turn Artists/Universal). Then Clash (U.K.) premiered the “What Would You Say” music video. In December, TAYMIR was selected to headline the CLUB NME party marking a massive debut London headlining show at the renowned club Koko.

In 2015, TAYMIR is ready for another exciting year with the international release of their debut full-length album PHOSPHENE, which will be released in Europe this spring, and the rest of the world later this year. TAYMIR will bring their infectious, garage-rock sounds to the U.S. at the 2015 SXSW Music Festival in Austin, TX. With a major run of shows this spring, the band is ready to share with the world what The Netherlands already knows...

"The four-piece have an electrifying live show, are cult heroes in their native land and create stirring riffs, pulsating drums, and soaring vocals.” --CLASH (U.K)
