Tinef was formed in Berlin, DE in 2006. Tinef's songs vary between soft ballads and harder pieces from the hard rock genre, which is why Tinef calls their own music style "emotional poprocket" . "It's like a symbiosis between catchy, gentle melodies and hard rocking altitude flights." (David Dwier about the band and it's music). Their music is about fear and self-management, experiences with love and failed relationships and the division of the ripening and growing up in general.
