About this Event
Tuys – a four piece Indie ensemble hailing from Luxembourg – are thoroughly passionate performers and their appearances at festivals around Europe have had the crowds responding with equal intensity.
The quartet is currently recording their untitled debut LP that is scheduled for an early 2017 release. As they tour and record they’re striving to grow their musical identity and create an even more coherent sound. We are happy be part of that journey and can’t wait to see their performance as part of our Stay & Play at ClinkNOORD! Make sure you come along to see what they can do.
About the Artist
Tuys officially formed in 2007. There’s Sam Tritz (lead vocals, rhythm guitar), Tun Biever (lead guitar, additional vocals), Yann Gengler (bass, additional vocals), and Kay Gianni (drums).
The boys draw their influences from far and wide – from danceable Indie-Pop (Two Door Cinema Club, The 1975), to more eclectic, experimental indie (Alt-J), and even alternative rock with a harder and progressive edge (Foals, Biffy Clyro).
The quartet has released two EPs and few stand-alone singles since. “People”, their first single released in 2012, was an instant success, reaching the number four spot on Luxembourg’s national charts. The positive response to the single consequently resulted in the success of their first EP (also named “People”) released in March 2013 as well as in supporting slots for The 1975 and The Kooks.
“Carousel”, their second EP self-released in April 2015, which was considered a more ambitious and mature project than their first short length record by the local media, only emphasised TUYS’ positive reputation among their national peers and secured them festival gigs on a local as well as international scale. The EP spawned two singles: “Dance” and “Carousel”.
