Since their formation in 2016, London-based Artificial Pleasure have been a unique voice on the British music scene. Their expansive sound defies categorisation - a cocktail of angular post-punk guitars, tight rhythmic grooves, and flourishes of disco-tinged energy.
In 2018 they released their debut album 'The Bitter End' – a collection greeted with glowing reviews from the NME, The Independent and The Line of Best Fit amongst others.
Artificial Pleasure have headlined shows across the UK, in Germany, Poland and Barcelona. They have recently being playing a series of small London shows in venues such as the Moth Club, the Social and the Shacklewell Arms ahead of the release of their second album later this year.
