AKDK + Artificially Yours + Nothing.Existed
“A joyful storm of synth loops, beats and beeps - AK/DK play
with passion, inventiveness and smiles plastered over their faces” Drowned In Sound
“…think Battles or Errors with the intensity turned right up, and possibly
playing after a few gin-and-petrol cocktails”
A joyful barrage of distorted drums and rhythms interweaves with simmering electronics... Known for their high energy and structural abandon as a live act, the duo now reveal a glimpse of their production and compositional nuance with their second, full-length album. Alongside their relentless disco-punk drums and Carpenter-esque arpeggios, a more developed sound is now on offer.
AK/DK are a band most at home on stage and their stream of largely improvised layers of fizzing arpeggios and crushing motorik drums has earned them places at many of the stages and festivals all around the UK and Europe, including Latitude, End of The Road, ArcTanGent and Green Man. They will be touring around the UK this autumn.
Some praise for their previous album ‘Synths + Drums + Noise + Space’:
“They carry over the improvised disco workouts of their frenetic live show with pinpoint percussion and crackling electronics; 8/10 – NME
“A triumph!” - Tom Robinson, BBC 6 Music
“One of the most exciting releases of the year; 8/10” - The Line of Best Fit
