Timid Kooky is said to be all about cartoonish celebration of the mundane. The Lithuanian trio mix alternative and progressive rock, noise and funk, creating a strange yet addictive style.
Their songs are little more than chants laid over menacing and at times hypnotic riffs that are as fascinating as they are visceral. Queens of the Stone Age and Primus are cited as musical influences, and their style also contains echoes of the Beastie Boys’ wackiness and the post-hardcore sonic assault of Rollins Band.
Their musical boldness and DIY ethos were met with praise when in 2017 they were named the Best Young Band in Lithuania and the Best New Baltic Band (Music Incubator NOVUS).
Since the release of their full debut album Tanzen, Timid Kooky managed to travel back and forth Europe, imprint their name into the Baltics music scene and flirt with international festivals from Slovenia (MENT Ljubljana) to Spain (Monkey Week) and the UK (Liverpool Sound City) among others.
