FILTER HAPPIER | Trying To Rush Everything – EP Release

The 16th of July was a great night for the band FILTER HAPPIER (previously known as Banana Elephant), as not only did they give their audience a wonderful performance, but their first appearance as a new band was made, and their first EP, released.

Although entering the event was a long wait, the atmosphere of the venue was very soothing, as people moved their feet to the flashing lights of the dance floor, while others drank and conversed to the refreshing breeze of the refurbished upper floor of The Grand Factory. The sound system was clearly audible throughout the whole venue, and still allowed people to carry on a decent conversation. With that, the Grand Factory proved to be a very convenient location that complemented both the vibes of FILTER HAPPIER and the musical style of “Trying To Rush Everything“, the newly released EP.

Set List:

  1. Intro
  2. YSF
  3. Circles
  4. Drown
  5. Glow
  6. Dust
  7. Tomorrow (Daughter cover)
  8. Home
  9. A dark
  10. Radiobed

Before Filter Happier punctually made their way to the stage, people grabbed their drinks from the bar, while some danced to the DJ’s great set-list, and others socialized for the sake of a good night. With a decent venue, also came a great performance. The only thing that needs to be worked on is the band’s transitions from song to song and their tension on stage (which will inevitably subside and improve with time), as it was a slight setback to the atmosphere of the music. Regardless, most of the audience swayed to the sound of the music and found it quite difficult to wipe the smile they had off of their faces. And considering the band’s transition from Banana Elephant to Filter Happier, that is an excellent sign.

The musical genre of the EP is also very compatible with the name of the band, as it touches at dream pop, shoegaze, and post-rock, and gives off quite the euphoric feel (we will post a full review about the EP soon, so stay tuned). The microphone seemed to give the band some trouble towards the beginning of the show, but that didn’t stop them from giving a killer performance, as the technical difficulty was hard to notice. The show was crowned by the band’s exceptional energy and magical connection with the crowd, and was followed by C U NXT SAT’s exhilarating DJ line-up .

The feedback from the audience was also very great, and everyone seemed to be having an ecstatic Saturday night. With that, your fans are surely awaiting your next gig and what is yet to come. The Metal Bell team wishes you the best of luck on the rest of your musical journey!

Filter Happier will be performing at WICKERPARK Music Festival Saturday September 10, 2016.

THE THRASH ALLIANCE – Four In One?

Bass_burtonJust a few days ago, it was the memory of Metallica’s late bassist Cliff Burton. Then the idea of paying tribute to Cliff came up, and what is a better place to do it than at THE THRASH ALLIANCE event? We’ve seen the Big Four playi live; we’ve watched them join the stage for one song where all of them performed together. Now it’s time for our bands to ally and give us one big performance TOGETHER. As the preparation for the event is ongoing, BLAAKYUM, EDEN, MADJERA & PHENOMY have been practicing for Saturday October 17, each on their own, not only to give us one hell of a show, but also members of the 4 bands will join the stage together to perform a Metallica medley from Cliff Burton’s era.

One more reason why you should not miss Metal Bell’s THE THRASH ALLIANCE Vol. 1 event at The Quadrangle Live – Hazmieh on OCT 17, 2015.
