Grey Lantern are excited to welcome back to Manchester
Glasgow’s disco-pop duo Free Love (fka Happy Meals and consisting of Suzanne Roden and Lewis Cook) are back with a new EP ‘Luxury Hits’ and a return to the northwest for the first time since their festival-stealing set at this year’s Sounds From The Other City!
Since their seductive Euro disco-flecked single ‘Pushing Too Hard’ came out in late July, the duo have rounded off a busy summer of festival bookings with a live performance at Gottwood, Lovebox, supporting Django Django & Sylvan Esso at Edinburgh International Festival and a live 6 Music session for Vic Galloway (sitting in for Marc Riley) after Tom Ravenscroft made them his 6 Music Recommends.
The duo’s new 8 track EP ‘Luxury Hits’, which features previous underground dance-pop favourites ‘Synchronicity’ and ‘Pushing Too Hard’, is an open-hearted love letter to possible futures. The record is a tropical soup of sonic utopias – channeling balearic nightcrawlers, wistful acid drenched production, French vocals and glittering italo and synth-heavy rhythms – served in the mercurial bowl of HERE AND NOW.
Free Love emerged in 2014 as Happy Meals from Glasgow’s renowned musical hub The Green Door Studio (the birthplace of other critically acclaimed DIY acts like LAPS, Golden Teacher, Total Leatherette and more). Their debut album Apéro was shortlisted for Scottish Album Of The Year in 2015, and was followed up by their second album last year, Full Ashram Devotional Ceremony.
