Bristol based BEAK> were formed in January 2009 by Billy Fuller (bass), Matt Williams (keyboards) and Geoff Barrow (drums) - also known as a member of Portishead. During a twelve-day session they recorded music for an eponymous album based on strict guidelines as for the writing and recording process of their work. The songs are reminiscent of German bands like Neu, Harmonia, Can and Kraftwerk and was recorded live in one room with no overdubs or repair, only using edits to create arrangements. All tracks were written over a twelve-day session in Bristol, England.
While retaining the eerie, claustrophobic atmosphere of its predecessor, the second LP from BEAK> boasts a brisker, more purposeful sequence. In 2016 BEAK> scored the soundtrack for the film Couple in a Hole.
