Southampton, United Kingdom - Tiniuc's debut EP 'Cybernetic Pipe Dream' takes you on a Synthwave adventure
For release on the 4th of July 2022.
Cybernetic Pipe Dream represents Tiniuc's debut as a solo artist. Its five tracks include aggressive electro-metal bangers, retro-inspired synthwave anthems and everything in between. The EP is launching on the 9th of July, and it will be available on Spotify, iTunes, Bandcamp & all other major platforms.
The first two tracks, Filthy Sin & Unholy Industry, express the frustration of being born in a flawed world without the agency to fix anything about it. The third track, Origins, is a meditation on the limited amount of time we can spend with our loved ones, and how we must make the most of it. The last two tracks embody yearning: Eternal Cobalt remembers better days in recent memory, while Nostalgia 1983 describes longing for an era you never lived through.

Alex has been performing live music since he was 12 years old. Around 2010, he played acoustic and electric guitar for Perpetuum Folk, a folk choir which performed at festivals and celebrations all across north-east Romania.
When he was 14, he started writing & recording his own music, which at the time consisted of rock instrumentals. He has also produced within a wide variety of EDM genres, including dubstep, chiptune & trance.
After moving to the United Kingdom and completing his degree, he found great joy in working with singer-songwriters. He produced & co-wrote two singles alongside Alice Grey, under the artist name Rechromia. He has also recorded and produced music for Fragile Lucy and Issy Somers.
He started playing the Chapman Stick in 2020, after having found himself with a lot of time to spend indoors. He has written several original songs for the stick and performs regularly at open mics across Southampton.
