laki mera are a three-piece electronica band based in Glasgow, Scotland. Formed in 2004 as a recording project by Andrea Gobbi and Laura Donnelly, they took their name from the Chimaera of Greek mythology.
Released late in 2010, the band’s debut EP ‘Clutter’ earned breathless comparisons with artists as diverse as the Cocteau Twins, Portishead, Blue Nile, Ryuichi Sakamoto and Radiohead. Such eclectism reflected the band’s inherent ability to capture a style immediately recognisable, yet in a realm of its own.
laki mera's music has been variously described as folktronica, ambient trip hop, 'lush space jazz' and pristine pop chamber music of the highest quality. They have been cited as one of the most promising, intelligent pop acts Scotland has produced this decade.
