Genre-defying new album from Northern Ireland collective fusing the edgy angst of Black Flag and the leftfield muse of jazz improvisation
 "Fugazi meets Mingus." - Drowned in Sound
 A seismic coming-of-age reflecting Belfast's non-conformist rise as a creative hub
 "Exploratory pioneers." - BBC Radio 3 Late Junction
 Toying with modern post-internet realism for a new generation, grasping at all that was cool in Beatnik jazz and throwing it against the post punk axiom
 "A cunning marriage of jazz, spoken word and punk" - The Quietus
 Including the singles ‘Wellness', ‘Heaven', ‘Chromo Sud' and ‘Plant (The Succulent Blues)'
 ‘Living Isn't Easy' is the culmination of Robocobra Quartet's dynamic evolution
 With continued radio support from Dan P Carter (Radio 1 Rock Show), Tom Robinson (BBC 6Music), Hannah Peel (BBC Radio 3/Radio Ulster), Dan Hegarty (RTE 2fm), Tina Edwards (WorldwideFM), Late Junction (BBC Radio 3), Stephen Macauley (BBC Radio Foyle), Dan Reed (WXPN) and Paul Carrubba (KUTX)
 Plus extensive live dates to be announced including:
8th - 10th June - MENT Festival (Slovenia)
22nd - 26th June - William's Green, Glastonbury Festival 2022
11th - 13th August - Haldern Pop Festival (Germany)
 And the UK/EU Album Launch Tour including dates in Dublin, Glasgow, Edinburgh, Leeds, Manchester, Bristol, Brighton, London, Birmingham, Paris, Luxembourg, Amsterdam, Brussels, Cologne, Hamburg, Berlin and Lyon
 Improvisation and experimentation is at the core of Robocobra Quartets DNA almost intentionally at odds with their roots as a post-punk band. Including members with no musical training alongside European music conservatoire innovators, the resulting is a groove-driven but cerebral blast, invoking the likes of Fugazi, Talking Heads and contemporaries such as Squid and Black Country, New Road. The eclectic free nature of their live shows allows them to channel-hop from moments of joy and playfulness to periods of intense fury, creating a unique sound that has earned them invitations to Montreux Jazz Festival, Latitude and as far out as the Inversia Festival in the polar north of Russia.
