SAY AWARD NOMINATED *VINYL REPRESS BACK IN STOCK!* Happy Meals is the Glasgow-based duo of Suzanne Rodden and Lewis Cook, life-partners
since high school finding expression in cosmic form. Originally from the Scottish borders,
Rodden and Cook (also of The Cosmic Dead) began Happy Meals in a flurry of
experimentation at Glasgow’s creative hub The Green Door Studio. Initially the result of a free
music production course, Apéro sees the pair embark on a blissful voyage into a love-fuelled,
outward-looking hedonism. Both artists operate machines and sing but it’s the dominating
Franco-Scottish lingua-franca of Suzanne Rodden that imbues a sense of seductive fun to the
album.
Their first recorded statement, Apéro is an instant rush of Kosmiche-disco, utterly addictive and
inviting. The epic Crystal Salutation welcomes the listener in with analogue synths delayed into
the horizon before Electronic Disco ushers in distorted drum machines and Rodden’s disco-atsunset
vocal. Album stand-out Altered Images is a pop-masterpiece, mixing French / Italo
disco, acid basslines and a sense of Scottish optimism. Age Of Love is unabashedly the feeling
of being up until day-break, with layered synths climaxing all-around. Retro-futuristic visions
abound on the beat-less Visions Of Utopia before closer
Le Voyage reprises back the cosmopolitan disco, playing out the perfect club night in ecstatic
fashion. It’s an enchanting, inclusive vision; everyone is invited, the future is bright.
