Genre-defying genius

Æ MAK defies classification. Blending the creative energy of Sia, Grimes, and Paul Simon with the theatrics of a young David Byrne, her infectious hooks take on a life of their own, beckoning you to the dance floor.

Æ MAK has performed across Ireland, the UK, and Europe, supporting acts like Tune-Yards, Django Django, and Warpaint.

Her new mixtape Berlin has been called “a dose of art-pop that is electrifying in its vision” by Clash Magazine and a debut LP is on the horizon for this mould-breaking musical priestess.
