About FM Belfast:
FM Belfast are Iceland's best kept secret; a band with colorful energy that instantly captures your attention. Musically, they create inspiring electro-indie-pop and always put on an explosive, impulsive and unpredictable live show - with anything from 3 to 30 people - always hitting the high notes and always leaving you with a smile.
'How To Make Friends' is the debut album from the creative collective... Lyrically it covers everything from the VHS (a stage on from The Buggles), to Love, to a Tropical and Exotic Rocky Island, to Running Down The Street In Your Underwear... And the band do cover versions (re-working Rage Against The Machine and Technotronic) in ways you would least expect... Get ready for Fun...
Q: Icelandic synth pop with tongue merrily in cheek... a frothy pleasure."
Mixmag: "Lo-fi kitschy wonderment" - Electro Album Of The Month
Gay Times: "If you like your pop served one part naively energetic and one part louche cool, tell them we sent you."
