Favourite Albums of 2017 #13 AK/DK - Patterns / Harmonics

Crazy. Bonkers. Off-the-hook. Music for tripping space cadets. These are just some of the words that come to mind when trying to describe the freaked-out sound of AK/DK. Hard hitting drums, devilish synths and vocals that are used to create textures and rhythms as much as melodies mix to create a sound that is in parts psychedelic, motorik, punk and certainly out on an edge of its own. Whereas most electronic acts often have a very studio based sound and production, Patterns / Harmonics feels much more organic and live – as if a bunch of crazy scientists have been let loose on stage with the mission of creating the oddest, grooviest, garage party imaginable as witnessed on opening track Morphology and the sixties influenced blast that is Atomic DNA.

Wonky. Warped. Wonderful. Sometimes frantic. Get some AK/DK in your ears and dance like nobody is watching. It's number 13 on the Breaking More Waves end of year album list.
