Part of the New Wave of Lithuanian Rock currently bubbling up from the Baltic states, Timid Kooky are all about cartoonish celebration of the mundane. As such, the Lithuanian trio have absorbed alternative and progressive rock, black metal, noise, and funk, to create a curiously addictive new sound—often little more than chants laid over menacing, hypnotic riffs, their songs are as fascinating as they are visceral.

Queens of The Stone Age and Primus are cited as key musical influences, and their style also contains echoes of Beastie Boys’ wackiness and the post-hardcore sonic assault of Rollins Band. Their musical boldness and independent DIY ethos were met with praise in 2017 when 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 2018l debut album Tanzen, Timid Kooky have travelled back and forth across Europe tirelessly, imprinting their name into the Baltic music scene and flirting with international festivals including MENT Ljubljana (SI), Liverpool Sound City (UK), SKIFF (RU), ENEA Spring Break (PL), Monkey Week (ES), Eurosonic (NL) and others.
