Krakatau was formed by friends James, Tom and Dylan Lieberman in late 2010 with a common interest in the free form side of late 60’s/early 70s psychedelic music, progressive rock and keyboard dominated soundtrack music. As time has passed the influences have shifted in direction of long form jazz composition, minimal music and more progressive left field sounds.

Krakatau has always been a performance-based group that while influenced by a large amount of music from the past, the band apply these influences with a self-aware modern ear that intern helps creates music that’s more than just mimicry and simulacra.
