Tieranniesaur began as a solo project of Annie Tierney of Yeh Deadlies and Chicks. Tieranniesaur is now a fearsome live band of seven and the extra hands have helped to secure a growing reputation for exciting shows with an effervescent party atmosphere. Tieranniesaur is unlike anything else on the Irish indie scene; a genre-straddling troupe that’s part old school Disco, part Afro-Pop and part New-Wave.
The band is part of Dublin DIY music collective Popical Island which enjoyed a great 2011 with several excellent releases, including Land Lovers, Squarehead and Patrick Kelleher, Yeh Deadlies and Big Monster Love.
Tieranniesaur’s self-titled Choice Music Prize nominated debut album was written and recorded at home by husband and wife Annie and Pádraig. The album has received gushing praise since its release in July 2011 and has topped many critics’ end-of-year polls.
