Manu Louis w/ Seiren, Mental Wealth & Voxish - The Peer Hat - Manchester

Peer Hat approved regular legend, Belgium born, Berlin based and Iberian frequenter, MANU LOUIS travels with a village of electronic instruments and video projections from pop stars or animals to deliver passionate performances that eventually switches gears into an impromptu discotheque.His music mixes high and low culture to create provocative and decontextualized juxtapositions. His general blueprint remains the same throughout all of his efforts, but the ingredients he uses may vary: from dissident chanson française, genial dilettante, avant-garde composer, new beat, old hit, art-pop & hard bop.Cream Parade, his new album is a disoriented walk led by synthetizers. It was released in May 2019 on Igloo Records and followed Kermesse Machine (2017) his first album. The last three years Manu performed at over 300 festivals and clubs across Europe and Asia.“Manu Louis is a Belgian with a subversive spring in his step” BBC“The Braggart of Kitsch” Libération“More colourfull than a unicorn vomiting a rainbow” Gonzai“Pop fantastique et Fantasque” France Culture“The Stromae of the Underground” Le SoirSEIREN fronted by divinely blessed vocalist, Helea Gimeno (lead guitar in Saturn Mansions), carve out a uniquely complex melancholia, that is immediately affecting and demanding of one's attention.Her path has taken her from Mexico, to Australia to Manchester, where she is currently resident.
