Happy Meals (live)
Belfast Music Club Dj's
Belfast Music Club is overjoyed to welcome one of the most exciting live acts we have seen in sometime. We were blown away when we experienced their performance at Optimo's Optimo 20 festival where they were the stand out highlight on a stellar line up, we have been determined to bring them to Belfast ever since. Tipped for big things by Test Pressing here's all you need to know:
Part of the Night School records family, and released on JD Twitch/Optimo affiliated coldwave label So Low, they embody the DIY aesthetic of Glasgow's creative incubator Green Door Studio.
''A Glasgow-based duo in thrall to minimalist Euro disco, who sing in French and are huge in the Russian underground scene, sounds like some sort of hideous hipster fantasy. But Happy Meals are very much real, and very good. Having met at high school, it was eight years before Suzanne Rodden and Lewis Cook started formulating ideas that would become Happy Meals—ice cold synths and smooth grooves, all built around abstract ideas rather than pre-determined structures. Since then, acclaim has come quickly—they’ve not only found themselves playing to delighted Moscow clubbers, but debut mini-album Apéro was nominated for Scottish Album of the Year. Their sultry synthpop and cosmic take on Italo is sure to bring them wider recognition in 2017 though, so watch out for one of electronic music’s best-kept secrets tearing up a dance floor or a party near you soon.” – Drowned In Sound 2017
