Tambourhinoceros is an independent record label and music publisher located physically in Copenhagen, Denmark and in electro-magnetic signals around the world.

What began as a burning feeling of obligation — to bring the groundbreaking, adventurous and artistically necessary music of our community to the world — has evolved into another overlapping mission. It’s a mission that has been represented in our logo from day one, and a mission which our catalog demonstrates more and more with every new release.

Having released music in every genre under the sun — from post-punk to opera, hip-hop to folk, dream-pop to ambient, and indie-rock to techno — we’ve discovered that we don’t see our artists’ diverse releases as disparate. Instead, we can’t help but see how much they all have in common.

At Tambourhinoceros we strive to show how adventurous music of every genre is related; how different parts have common pieces; how different humans have common humanity. We’re in the business of finding common ground—showing how no individual circle stands alone. They all, and we all have something in common.


We're committed to monitoring our emissions and we're always going with the most sustainable methods within our reach to produce and package our records. 

We're proud co-sponsors of Impala's Carbon Calculator and we've signed the Music Declares Emergency declaration calling for climate action. As they say, there's no music on a dead planet.


In 2021, we signed the Keychange Pledge Agreement, an international gender equality campaign for the European music industry. Our pledges are:

  • Work towards that women or gender minority artists constitute 50% or more of our active roster by 2025
  • Work towards that women or gender minority employees constitute 50% or more of staff by 2028
  • Consider the balance of contractors we work with
  • Provide feedback on all demos from women or gender minority artists


Licensing & Synchronisation

For synchronisation and other licensing requests, please write an email to us here or through one of our sub-publisher listed below. A heads up: we don't license our music for free. There are plenty of reasons—the obvious one being that we'd cannibalise the livelihoods of our artists.

Demo Submissions

For the time being, we can't commit to listen and/or reply to unsolicited demos. 

We're always scouting for likeminded artists so let us find you in stead. 

Jobs & Internships

'There's no paid positions available at the moment. However, as our ambitions are notoriously bigger than our ressources we do offer internships where we strive to give value back to interns in the for increased knowledge and know-how and a wider network within the music industry.
