Pecho Mama make genre defying music, drawing on Electronica, Prog-Rock, Punk and Jazz.
Their live performances are high octane spectacles, combining layers of sound design, lavish costumes, abstract projections and spellbinding theatricality.
Being at a Pecho Mama gig is like witnessing a concept album brought to life.
“Goldfrapp-esque electronics throttled the audience and some haunting visuals left the lasting impression of a bold creative talent and that rarest of thing: something genuinely new”
"It's more than a gig; an extravaganza with no shortage of drama"
"Spine tingling songs of defeat and heartbreak"
