We are Æ MAK
Æ MAK's soundscape, visuals and bewitching live performance transport us to another realm. With percussive vocal harmonies, a creative visual aesthetic and a punk-esque performance style, Æ MAK are a bewitching live band.
Having performed to highly receptive audiences at a number of acclaimed Irish festivals including: Body & Soul, Electric Picnic, Other Voices, Knockanstockan and Another Love Story, 2017 saw the band support Californian indie band Warpaint and embark on their first Irish tour, debuting their act in the UK at Liverpool Sound City.
Their debut jungle pop EP I Can Feel it In My Bones was released in November 2016. Their second single I Walk was released this year.
