Music snobs finally have their own dating app

Music makes the people come together, yeahhhh.

DO YOU CRAVE the company of people who only listen to the same rare ’70s b-sides as you? Can’t be friends with anyone who likes Beyoncé? Have we got the app for you.

The website Tastebuds was created in 2010 by former bandmates Alex Parish and Julian Keenaghan, who felt it was hard to meet people of the opposite sex who liked the same music. Tough enough.

Matching people based on their music tastes, the site soon grew to over 170,000 users – with Parish himself meeting his current girlfriend on the site.

According to the Daily Dot Tastebuds has been online for four years, but earlier this week they finally launched an iPhone app.


It works by scanning the music you have on your phone, and creating a profile based on the artists you like.

The app then shows you nearby matches with similar music tastes – like Tinder, except for music nerds.

Finally, a way to find that person out there who loves old-school Finnish death metal, just like you.
