Known for their raw and fierce live shows, AK/DK’s upcoming album was recorded live and largely improvised capturing their energy and spontaneity. In anticipation of the album, the pair have shared the first taste of it, the excellent and infectious ‘Maxwell’s Waves’. Listen to it below and be on the look out for SYNTH + DRUMS + NOISE + SPACE which is set to drop on May 19th via Little Miss Echo Recordings.

AK/DK announce new EP and offer lead track ‘Battersea’


Brighton’s AK/DK have announced the release of their new EP Dispatch #3. Graham Sowerby and Ed Chivers, who make up AK/DK, first released Dispatch #1 in 2011 and its follow-up Dispatch #2 dropped last year.
Dispatch #3 comes in the shape of a limited edition fluorescent cassette and is slated for a May 20th release via their own imprint LittleMissEcho Recordings.
Known for their fierce improvised shows, the forthcoming EP “sounds as raw and energized as their live performances” and sees the pair “resisting the temptation to edit or add anything in post-production”, as the press release describes.

Lucky for us, ahead of the EP’s release, AK/DK are offering the brilliant and thunderous single ‘Battersea’ as a free download on their bandcamp. Listen to it now.

AK/DK’s debut full-length is expected this summer, we’ll keep our ears peeled for updates. In the meantime, make sure you listen to the excellent mixtape they put together for Cast the Dice last month.
