Released: 24th Jun 2022



Released: 8th Jul 2022


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
