Limpet Space Race

Duo mishmashing pop, jazz, prog and electronics to bring you ‘sublimely experimental' songs with a ‘one of a kind sound’.
Limpet Space Race formed in December 2017 with Niko O’Brien (FR/IT) on percussion/guitar/electronics/clarinet and Hannah ‘Jakes’ Jacobs (UK) on vocals/keys/guitar/various bits and bobs.
Their ‘fascinating’ sound mixes pop with homemade instruments and electronics, and math pop and prog influences.
They gig, build sound installations and do experimental collaborations - most recently on a piece for electronics and orchestra. They like to keep things live, not using loops or drums machines, and just having fun with how much noise two people can make. They released their first single and music video, Cartograffiti, in April 2019 with Oxford label Upcycled Sounds Records.
They currently live in Oxford running a recording studio doing sound for music, film and documentaries round the world. They love their local scene and are at the heart of way too many projects: a 3 day music festival, record label, new music venue and gig series, and an international music exchange programme.
If the music thing doesn’t work out, Plan B is to get a limpet into space.
