Orchestrated by Marcus Hamblett, Kopek are an inspired post-rock collective from Brighton UK.
Musically, Kopek are a delicate and mesmerising band that blend the percussive ideals of Tortoise with the intricate and textural guitar harmonies of Earth and the electronic creativeness of Matmos. Live the band fluctuates between solo shows comprising multi-layered guitars and drum lines, to full live shows with drums, clarinets, violins, and flutes, all the time beautifully balanced against Marcus' progressive and hollowed yet captivating vocal.
