As a visual artist, the stage show allows Æ MAK’s artistic vision to come to life in real time.
Support is from Faith Nico aka Cruel Sister who brings her unmistakable fuzzy bedroom shoegaze and perfectly compliments Æ MAK’s live show.
In the beginning, Aoife McCann (Æ MAK) created a vision of an other-worldly landscape on which she could escape to and perform. An energy inspiring primitive vocal rhythms, off the cuff melodic hooks, and lyrical content formed from the sound of the vocal metre.
From dreams to dreamscapes, with producer Daniel McIntyre (lullahush), Æ MAK has honed the soundtrack to that vision. This year saw the independent release of three single projects of experimental art pop, 'Glow', 'Love Flush' and 'Too Sad to Sing', which have received support from the likes of BBC Radio 6, Radio X, Earmilk and The Line of Best Fit whilst the likes of Hot Press and Nialler9 have shouted praise for earlier singles, including 'I Walk', recently featured in the Katie Taylor documentary, 'Katie'.
The all consuming energy of Æ MAK’s performance enraptures the audience. The primitive vocal rhythms and infectious melody sail a dark sea of electronica. As a visual artist, the stage show allows Æ MAK’s artistic vision to come to life in real time, drawing elements of the themes and choreography from her self-directed music videos.
'With a complete lack of regard for the confines of genre, McCann embraces elements of pop, dance, folk, and electronica hypnotically' - Line Of Best Fit
Dance music that rebels against its own genre in a remarkable way' - Earmilk
