Reggae music from Dusseldorf, Germany? Not the sound that most people would associate with that city.
People familiar with today’s youth culture might default to images of Germany’s underground punk movement. THE TiPS, however, began their musical journey within that scene and immediately introduced elements of cozy reggae along with smooth soul into their hard driving punk songs. A process which created their unique sound and style. Punks of all sub genres, however, continue to follow their fellow travelers even while the band’s style has been quickly attracting a larger and more diverse fan base. THE TiPS latest album, to be released on Long Beach Records Europe on February 19, 2016, stays true to their musical vision while taking a step further. TWISTS’N’TURNS honors THE TiPS reputation as Germany’s seminal punk/reggae/rock band all-the-while branching out for the first time to international markets.
