Jakob

Post-Rock, (NZ)

Jakob, one of New Zealand’s most formidable sonic instrumental three-piece, formed in the sleepy seaside town of Napier, Hawke’s Bay in 1998. Their debut album Subsets Of Sets (2002) put them on the map, their sophomore Cale:Drew (2005) solidified them as one of the country’s true explorative musical outfits and their third album Solace (2006) took them to the world. On the back of Solace’s release they toured Europe, the UK, Australasia and the USA with the likes of Isis, Pelican, Cog and The Hidden Hand. As their reputation continued to build they were twice personally invited to tour with American prog-rock heroes Tool throughout Australia and New Zealand, and toured alongside Damo Suzuki, frontman for seminal German psychedelic band Can.

It took 8 long years for the band to record and complete their fourth album Sines. The album was awarded the prestigious Taite Award, the only time an instrumental album has received such an honour and testimony to the esteem the album enjoyed. Sines also earned them a number 2 spot on the NZ albums chart. Following soaring critical and fan response they toured Europe extensively over the following years selling out shows all throughout and headlining festivals such as Dunk! and Roadburn.

While comparisons to bands like Mogwai, Sonic Youth, Sigur Ros & ISIS follow the band to give them context, Jakob have long since earned their reputation across the globe as a truly unique and artistic sonic entity. One of the country’s most heralded live acts with a back catalogue of critically acclaimed, and widely adored releases that have richly enhanced New Zealand’s musical legacy.
