a.P.A.t.T.

      a.P.A.t.T. have been baffling audiences since 1997, stretching the constraints of what a musician is expected to be whilst constantly pushing their practice into new uncharted areas. Sounding like no∼one yet reminding you of everything… Sometimes at the same time. Your favourite mixtape from Liverpool !

The drummer takes the keyboard, the guitarist starts singing and the second keyboardist blows a clarinet, then plays violin ← It’s normal, it’s a.P.A.t.T. ; And after a sweet moment of crazy «pop», the group offers a surging «sludge» that makes the speakers bleed, then follows a feverish and contagious «electro» dance, followed by an enigmatic «contemporary» interlude. We can bet that they will all change instruments again and that they will deliver a «bossa nova» pastiche or a «klezmer» hybrid… This is normal, it is a.P.A.t.T.

• a.P.A.t.T. are undeniably unique yet carry on a historical musical lineage that runs deep inside whole english music < > arghtists with open minds∼hearts like The Beatles, Pink Floyd, Cardiacs, David Bowie, Radiohead a.P.A.t.T. ! ? Bon appétit  !
