The Young Professionals
- Tel:+972 544 648257
Emerging from Tel Aviv’s bustling young arts scene, TYP has spent the last two years fusing electro-pop with graphic design, video, dance, fashion and architecture. The band was founded by singer-songwriter Ivri Lider and producer Johnny Goldstein, and has always been about the exploration of different aesthetic spheres.
This Frankenstein-esque mixture of artistic disciplines is never more pronounced than in a live setting - the band has performed against a backdrop of models strutting their stuff on the catwalk, at a massive rave in the desert, amidst the lavishness of Cannes Marina, in the darkness of Earth Hour, and at the Tel Aviv Museum of Art, where they projected a dazzling 3D video across the Herta and Paul Amir Building.
TYP’s breakthrough came in July 2011 with the release of the single, ‘D.I.S.C.O.’, a cover of the 1970s Ottawan classic, and soon after they signed a three-album deal with Polydor/Universal. Insummer 2012, the band released their critically acclaimed debut album, “9AM to 5PM, 5PM to Whenever”. TYP has received back-to-back nominations for Best Israeli Act at the MTV Europe Music Awards, as well as one for Best European Act.
