A bit of funk, a bit of rock and a lot of fun is what goes into the music that Relikc makes.
— Mike Bugeja

biography

Relikc is a Maltese band, specializing in creating perfect blends of funk, soul and rock, and getting the party started! 

Having collaborated together in several bands and projects during their school years, the founding members gravitated towards each other, eventually becoming a formal band in 2009. During its first years, Relikc crammed its schedule with a multitude of gigs, all the while releasing a number of songs, establishing its position in the local music scene. 

2014 was a year of significant change for Relikc. Following a one-year hiatus due to a change in line-up, the band focused on rebuilding its tight and energetic performance, and released its single, Prime Time, accompanied by a music video. Relikc also rebuilt its presence in the live music scene, hitting several stages, making a much enjoyed return to the Farson's Beer Festival, as well as other events and festivals of such scale.

In 2015, Relikc released its debut EP, titled "It's Not Misspelt", which is a playful reference to the common misspelling of its name. Whilst the band has at times struggled with it, they grew quite fond of its quirkiness and the title was meant to tell everyone that Relikc was here to stay. Parallel to this, the EP was the first big release by the band following its one-year hiatus. 

The band is constantly trying to improve its game, and push the envelope. Though traditionally a 5-piece band, Relikc reaches its culmination as a 9-piece power house of funk, inviting other musicians and friends to join them on stage and contribute with their musical expertise.

Fast forward to today, Relikc is currently recording its debut album which is set to be released some time in 2017. The album promises to have a fresh sound, whilst still being true to Relikc's recognizable fun and funky character. The journey is far from over. Stay tuned for more info soon!
