Kovak is a British band based in Brighton. The band originally consisted of Annelies 'Abby' Van de Velde (vocals), Karl Bray (guitars), Darren 'Dazza' Bray (drums) and Jonny Scafidi (bass & cello). [1][2] Scafidi left the band in 2015 to pursue his dream of running a fish and chip shop.[citation needed] Their work has been hailed in the music press, racking up comparisons to Blondie, Chrissie Hynde and Duran Duran[citation needed] and labelled "the UK's answer to the Scissor Sisters."

The band have performed several times at Toronto’s NXNE festival and were voted "Top 10 Critics Choice" of NXNE by Now Magazine as well as appearing live on CP24′s Noon Show in front of 1.4 million viewers.[citation needed]
