ROBOCOBRA QUARTET - HEAVEN VINYL (7")
Release Date: 15th April 2022
"First single in three years from Belfast’s Robocobra Quartet. For fans of Black Country, New Road, Black Midi, Squid, Fugazi, Dry Cleaning. “Fugazi meets Mingus.” - Drowned in Sound “Exploratory pioneers.” - BBC Radio 3 Late Junction “A cunning marriage of jazz, spoken word and punk” - The Quietus. Improvisation and experimentation is at the core of Robocobra Quartet's DNA, almost intentionally at odds with their roots as a post-punk band. Including members with no musical training alongside European music conservatoire innovators, the result is a groove-driven but cerebral blast, invoking the likes of Fugazi, Talking Heads and contemporaries such as Squid and Black Country, New Road. The eclectic free nature of their live shows allows them to channel-hop from moments of joy and playfulness to periods of intense fury, creating a unique sound that has earned them invitations to Montreux Jazz Festival, Latitude and as far out as the Inversia Festival in the polar north of Russia."
