FOHL TUYS-BandPic 010

TUYS are a Luxembourgish indie band originating from Dudelange, LU and officially formed in 2007. The group consists of Sam Tritz (lead vocals, rhythm guitar), Tun Biever (lead guitar, additional vocals), Yann Gengler (bass, additional vocals), and Kay Gianni (drums).

Their influences include danceable pop-influenced indie , to more eclectic, experimental indie, and even alternative rock with a harder and progressive edge.

The quartet has released two EPs and few stand-alone singles since then. “People”, their first single released in 2012, became 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”.

TUYS just recorded new songs with Jan Kerscher at Ghost Recording Studio to be released as singles throughout the next year.

Press:

"Cette énergie rock se prolongeait ensuite sur la moyenne scène, où Tuys avait pris place. Le groupe indie-pop luxembourgeois mêlait habilement rock et groove, avec un véritable sens de la mélodie, à l’image du single «Carousel»." L’Essentiel

"Without a doubt Tuys are one of the most exciting bands to emerge from the Luxembourgish music scene [...] If the reception they received from the Rock-A-Field crowd was anything to go by, they should be have plenty of support on their way to the next stage of their careers." Luxemburger Wort 

"Tuys are so fresh and enthousiatic you just love them." Atelier

"I’ve had my eye on TUYS for quite some time now and it is amazing how much they’ve matured musically since I’ve known them, with a distinctive, catchy indie music style. They’ve established themselves as a well-known name on the Luxembourg music scene and I’m confident TUYS will take their music much further!" Fuse
