Alongside Overhead the Albatross and Sorcha Richardson, Akrobat’s single Basquiat’s Widow gets a nice review in Hotpress.


Delighted to feature in the Monday Mixtape section of the fabulous The Thin Air. Shane and Paddy picked a few of their desert island disks and influences for the Akrobat sound.

The Thin Air

BCPS presents an immersion of music by alt-indie band Akrobat and electronic imagery visualisations by artist Fiona McDonald. The collaboration is inspired by music rooted in electronica and coded visuals that can be generated from sound. The music played by Akrobat will be lo-fi in nature and consists of synth/keyboard, electric guitar and jazz-vocal. The electronic generative visuals on display will be dynamic and guided by a live performance from Akrobat.

Fri 23rd September kicking off at 6pm

Our first single ‘Basquiat’s Widow’ is set to launch September 9th. Accompanied by an animated video by Aaron Ross it’s a literal art rocker to introduce the band. Previews on our Instagram.
