Pete the Temp & the Vibe Mechanics

A folk-hop fusion of harp, synth, live-looping & beatbox.

The Vibe Mechanics are a lively and funny collision of harp, vocals and a throbbing cosmos. Classical instruments combine with synth and FX machinery in this mashup of music and absurdist theatre. The result is a poetic and songful carnival of vibes. Expect a one-of-a-kind act of rapture. Laugh, sing, dance and prepare to be enchanted.
