Belfast, County Antrim
Mining influence from jazz, hardcore punk and contemporary classical music, Robocobra Quartet sound like little else.
The four-piece began performing live in Belfast in 2014, drawing attention wherever they were heard. Momentum has grown since then, and their no holds barred approach - centred on a howling drummer-vocalist and offset by menacing saxophones - has garnered them a reputation as a must-see live act.
Robocobra Quartet’s brew of spoken vocals, effects-laden bass, and raw improvisation has taken them to festivals such as Electric Picnic & Brilliant Corners Festival of Jazz and has seen them release music on Smalltown America, Fringe Sound Records, & their own imprint Abbreviated Records. Bolstered by support from BBC Radio 6, 2016 sees the band performing dates throughout the UK, Ireland & Europe supporting a new 12" LP funded by the PRS Foundation.
