Rather appropriately for the current world climate, the latest single ‘Blitzed’ from Irish synth band Tiny Magnetic Pets deals with boredom, loss of control and the downsides of social media where by its very nature dupes us into thinking that everyone else is having a better life than us. It is however delivered in the typical energetic TMP style: a driving bass & synth groove with Eugene doing his best Clem Burke impersonation on drums – topped off by singer Paula Gilmer’s playful yet confident delivery.
Approaching live performance like a rock band, TMP have played no less than seven tours in the last two years opening for OMD on the UK leg of their sold-out Punishment Of Luxury tour, Midge Ure on his 1980 Vienna/Visage European & UK tours as well as The Killers’ Dave Keuning, plus Krautrock legends: Wolfgang Flür (Kraftwerk) and Michael Rother (NEU/Kraftwerk/Harmonia).

‘Blitzed’ is taken from the band’s ‘Politburo Disko’ EP which is due for release on August 21st
