Tinavie is a band from Moscow, Russia, first appeared at the end of 2008.
Too much nerve for lounge and too fast for downtempo, too sweet for the underground and too shiny for trip-hop. Not being faithful followers of any listed musical genre, Tina and the band are exploring some new sound landscapes, according to the band’s own vision of what modern independent pop music must be.
Tinavie’s debut album, Augenblick (‘like winking’ in German), was self-released in Russia April, 2010 and featured 11 Tina’s most early songs, carefully arranged by the band for the live performance. According to the concept, that ran as a red thread through the whole album and its artwork, the record was mostly played live, with the few additional studio recordings and production.
The second studio album Hidden Places by Tinavie was released November, 2011 and featured 13 brand new songs. ‘Hidden Places’ was recorded in Moscow August—November 2011 and mixed by famous russian sound-producer Andrey Aliakrinskiy (Tequilajazzz, Zorge, Sunsay, Markscheider Kunst) at Dobrolet Studio, St.Petersburg.
