Timid Kooky is said to be all about the 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 music 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 independent DIY ethos were met with praise when in 2017 they were named the Best Young Band in Lithuania, as well as the Best New Baltic Band at the NOVUS music contest. 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 such as MENT Ljubljana (SI), Liverpool Sound City (UK), SKIFF (RU), ENEA Spring Break (PL), Monkey Week (ES) and others. In 2020 Timid Kooky announced that their new album is on the way. Although it is hard to predict what to expect from their future releases, one thing’s for certain, Timid Kooky are an almost genre-defying whimsical band with the chops to absorb almost everything from funk and jazz to black metal.
