Improvisation and experimentation is at the core of Robocobra Quartet’s DNA, whether it be in the fluidity of their line-up (six musicians tagging in and out to make up the live touring quartet) or in their unique self-produced records which flirt with the likes of choral groups and string sections – almost intentionally at odds with their ostensible roots as a post-punk band.

These juxtapositions are just the beginning of the complex world of Robocobra Quartet– a band serious about their music but humorous in their approach; a band consisting of members with no musical training alongside members with backgrounds in music tuition and with European music conservatoire pedigree. The result is a group of musicians inspired by Stravinsky and Black Flag in equal measures.

The free nature of the band’s live shows led to them being embraced early on by jazz and prog fanatics just as much as rock fans – once finding themselves in Europe touring a jazz club one night, a house show the next and a pop festival the night after that.

These unmatched live performances often channel-hop from moments of joy and playfulness to periods of intense fury, earning the band invitations to Montreux Jazz Festival, Latitude Festival and as far as Inversia Festival in the polar north of Russia whilst receiving acclaim from the likes of The Quietus, Jazzwise and BBC Radio 6.
