…an unnamed source today confirmed that the Asylum Steampunk Festival will this year be hosting Steam Powered Giraffe for their UK debut.
Speaking from around a paw sticky with honey he revealed that Steam Powered Giraffe will be headlining features in a new dedicated music venue at the UK’s most popular steampunk festival.
We’ve been allowed a quick peek at the projected line-up and there will be a truly stellar display of bands and performers at this year’s event, with some big names, some new names and some old favourites too.
More than a band. More than a show.
Step into the world of Steam Powered Giraffe.
Steam Powered Giraffe is a musical project from San Diego, California. It was formed in 2008 by twin siblings David Michael Bennett and Isabella “Bunny” Bennett. Together, along with performer/artist Samuel Luke and a cast and crew filled with theatrical backgrounds, the group takes on the guise of singing antique automatons and the fictional robotics company that made them.
The quirky act combines comedic sketches, improvised android banter, and original music fused with multimedia visuals, billowing steam effects, and robot pantomime.
From their heartwarming nostalgic melodies to their funky cabaret rock, Steam Powered Giraffe’s songs are memorable, infectious, and as unique as the robots themselves.
