FM Belfast - How to make friends

When it comes to pumping out great electronica, Iceland have pretty much got it covered. Yet whilst the majority of artists to emerge from the world’s electronic capital are somewhat weird and wonderful experimentalists (think Sigur Ros and Bjork), FM Belfast have gone more mainstream and acknowledged the dirty western influence in their infectiously synth-ridden music.

It seems they have finally realised their selfish ways and decided to release their album in the UK as well as Iceland, and boy am I glad they have. How To Make Friends is 36 minutes of original, down-tempo electro that proves you don’t have to record a disgruntled goat playing the keyboard to make original electro.

Each song seems to resemble a myriad of bands past and present, combining genres and influences in an innovative tribute to electro. It takes you on a journey of electronic music through the ages, from the rude synths of Black Devil Disco Club through the tropical sounds of The Knife to the intricate melodies of MSTRKRFT, taking elements of each band and mashing them together to create one eclectic mix.
