Tinavie is a Moscow/Paris-based indie-pop band that made its first public appearance at the end of 2008. Nothing would ever be possible without the multi-talented singer and songwriter Tina, whose mesmerizing songs and outstanding vocal drew the band members together. At the end of 2012 Rolling Stone Russia magazine named Tina among TOP10 Russia's emerging band leaders.
Nu jazz and avant-pop, trip-hop and downtempo, lounge and ambient are among the ways the Tinavie music is often described by the audience and the music critics. Not being faithful followers of any specific musical genre, Tinavie are exploring the new sonic landscapes, following nothing but their own vision of what modern independent pop music should be.
To date Tinavie have released three studio albums and played numerous gigs around Russia and Ukraine, as well as made successful international festival and club stage appearances in France and United States; they have appeared in the same line-up with such internationally acclaimed musicians as Apparat Band, Architecture In Helsinki, Kraak & Smaak, Fallulah, dEUS and others.
The latest Tinavie album "Kometa" (which in English means "a comet") was released on iTunes on November 18, 2013. The musicians themselves jokingly describe the album as "Le Petit Prince" from the Saint-Exupery story who found himself to be a character of Lars Von Trier "Melancholia".
