Electronic band BEAK> was founded in 2009 by producer Geoff Barrow, bassist Billy Fuller (Robert Plant), and Matt Williams, who was recently replaced by musician Will Young. This year, they recorded the soundtrack to the film Couple in a Hole, they performed at festivals such as Glastonbury and Primavera, and this summer they will play also at Pohoda 2017.
BEAK> released the eponymous album in November 2009. They recorded the
music for the album over 12 days in one room and did not perform any further modifications. In the summer of 2012, they released their second album called “>>”. Stuart Berman of Pitchfork wrote that “krautrock”
Beak> is steadily moving forward. This is what Geoff Barrow said about
our festival after their concert at Pohoda 2011: “This is by far the best festival we’ve ever been to. Its line-up, ethos, people who organize it, non-profit organization, food, everything. I had two big mackerels this afternoon – they were fantastic. I walked around the whole site several times. I saw fantastic Cello Colloseum, classical music on main stage, sunflowers. It’s beautiful. No bullshit. This is the best festival”.
"Geoff, it was our honour. We can´t wait to hear your opinion of next year´s Pohoda, and we began looking for a mackerel stall :)", added Michal Kaščák.
