“electrifying live show … cult heroes in their native land”
– Clash (UK)
“rawness of the Arctic Monkeys and the unapologetic pop of Franz Ferdinand”
– FLOOD (formerly Filter Magazine)
“happy-go-lucky garage rock … reinvigorates the genre the way Jack White resurrected blues rock … polished rocker coolness à la The Strokes”
– MTV Iggy
“Taymir may be from The Netherlands, but their sound falls squarely in the British pop realm. Their insanely catchy single, “Aaaah” is representative of the fun, poppy feel of the band. Just beware, if you see this band, you will end up dancing.”
—HIGH VOLTAGE “SXSW Top Ten to Watch”
LISTEN TO “AAAAAH” (HERE).

The Dutch four-piece TAYMIR (pronounced tie-meer) are taking SXSW 2015 by storm.
Their infectious, garage-rock sounds have landed the group on multiple Top Ten lists of Artists to Watch at SXSW 2015 ranging from the Austin Chronicle to Hit Fix Entertainment.
After opening up for Austin heroes Spoon last night at packed crowd for the SXSW debut of FLOODFEST on Cedar Street Courtyard (photo above), TAYMIR will perform tonight (Thursday, 3/19; 9:20pm) at the Planetary Group event at Maggie Mae’s Gibson Lounge (512 Trinity St.). On Friday, 3/20 at 6:00pm they’ll perform a four-song set at Daytrotter (1210 E. 3rd Street) and on Saturday, 3/21 at 1:45pmt hey’ll play Culture Collide at the Container Bar (90 Rainey Street) alongside Palma Violets, The Vaccines and many others.
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. 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 at Paradiso in 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 (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. In 2015, TAYMIR—tipped as ones-to-watch by MTV Iggy–is ready for another exciting year with the international release of their debut full-length album PHOSPHENE, due out in Europe this spring, and the rest of the world later in the year. With a major run of shows this spring, TAYMIR is ready to share with the world what The Netherlands already knows…
