Kollega are inspired and motivated by fusing technology and contemporary sounds into their music alongside acoustic and electric instruments.
The tunes are underpinned by big grooves and processed bass sitting beneath insistent tenor saxophone and lush analogue synths with loops and samples providing lots of sweet additional sonic interest. They believe the studio and live outputs of the band should reflect each other while providing different and complementary experiences. Studio recordings are beautifully produced and live performances feature plenty of space for communication and improvisation.
Kollega want to make music that is a mixture of grunt for dancing and head-stuff for listening!
“It sounds like if the Apex Twin had a live band.”
