Robocobra Quartet - Jazz Jazz Punk Hip Hop Spoken Word Live Act in Belfast

Robocobra Quartet Short Info

Mining influence from jazz, hardcore punk and contemporary classical music, Robocobra Quartet sound like little else.

As an expanding, contracting and ever-changing collective, the group began performing live in 2014 while studying at the Sonic Arts Research Centre in Belfast, Northern Ireland. Since then, their no holds barred approach - centred on a howling drummer-vocalist and offset by menacing saxophones - has garnered the group 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 seen billing alongside acts such as Melt Yourself Down (UK), Girl Band (IRE), El Ten Eleven (USA) and Get The Blessing (UK).

Bolstered by support from BBC Radio 6 and the PRS Foundation, 2016 has seen the band perform throughout the UK, Ireland & Europe whilst conducting recording sessions in studios and concert halls around Belfast. This culminates in the release of a 12" LP titled 'Music For All Occasions', out November 18th 2016.

"A four piece that sound like no other." - State.ie

"A sprawling sound that takes in jazz, post-hardcore and classical music." - Loud & Quiet

"A decidedly forward-thinking force to be reckoned with." - The Thin Air
