Alternative Ireland: An Evening With Meltybrains?
Rich Mix, London.
This event is for over 16s only - No refunds will be issued for under 16s.
Serious is proud to present an evening with some of the most exciting artists to emerge from the Irish alternative music scene in recent years: featuring 5 piece experimentalists Meltybrains? and soulful singer songwriter Loah who grew up between Ireland and West Africa.
Since their first appearances in Dublin in 2012, Meltybrains? have garnered a strong reputation for their unabashed creativity and unique, audience-engaging live shows - developing a cult following and selling out tours across the UK and Ireland, along with major festival appearances such as SXSW and Electric Picnic.
The chemistry between each member is infectious and their style has been compared to artists such as GOAT, Fuck Buttons, and Animal Collective, amongst others. The truth is, however, that Meltybrains? have no comparison, and they must be seen to be truly believed.
'They literally blew my mind. They're such accomplished musicians. All I can say is see Meltybrains? when you can. They are incredible live.' (BBC Northern Ireland)
'the band's luscious auto-tune sprinkled harmonies to float freely until reaching a definite contender for percussion break of the year.' (BoilerRoom)
'Meltybrains? might be classical trained musicians, but their music is indefinable, their fans look like cult members, and their live shows are bewildering.' (The Irish Times)
Fresh from her success at our Imagining Ireland concert at the Barbican in March, Loah will be performing a solo set in a double bill with Irish experimentalists.
The Sierra Leonean / Irish singer songwriter returns to the club setting of Rich Mix to sing her special mix of soul, RnB and folk.'
The sweet melancholy soul of Loah, whose gentle confidence and style on the stage, singing in both in English, in her Irish accent, or in her Sierra Leonean language revealed what an outstanding talent she is.' (Irish World)
