about

Tankris Wien, Austria

TANKRIS are four musicians from Vienna, all prolific in their own ways between improvised music, jazz, free form/noise- rock, rather not sticking with too clear defined or hollow genres in their work. The 11 songs from „Tankris“ follow Chris´ vision of a „different“ pop-band, in the process creating an exciting and unique mix of musical ideas and grooves. Best enjoyed with open ears! ... more
