Imagine you’re heading to high school with your uncool style and your headphones on, and then suddenly the boy/girl of your dreams passes by you and you get butterflies in your stomach. Such a typical scene, right? Well, if Karen Meat music was a film, it would probably be about adolescent exhilaration.
Even though they are past their teen years, the Des Moines, Iowa-based band have this carefree and daydream approach in a mix of bubblegum lo-fi, rock and electronics. It all started with Arin Eaton as a solo project, but then she was joined by Brad Turk, John Huffman, and Phil Young. They released their 2015’s debut EP, Karen Meat & The Computer, and now they are about to release a new EP, On The Couch, out June 3rd via Sump Pump Records.
