Counterflows 2017
Late Night Counterflows Social - with Olimpia Splendid, Anxiety and DJs

Fri 7 April 2017

Counterflows late night soirees are becoming a bit of a tradition on the Glasgow calendar and 2017's festival continues this with a blasting night of no-core fun.

Olimpia Splendid sound a bit like all our favourite guitar bands rolled up into one. Made up of three woman at the beating-heart of the Helsinki art and music underground – Heta Bilaletdin, Jonna Karanka and Katri Sipiläinen – they make wiry, hypnotic and out-of tune DIY punk with guitars, bass and a drum machine. Reliably brilliant weirdo imprint Fonal Records released their debut 7” EP in 2013, which was followed by a full-length debut in July 2015.

“This wonderful Finnish trio sound like Royal Trux, The Dead C and the troublemaking witches from Macbeth, stirring their pot with grease and glitter… Party music for the tipping point before things get messy.” – The Wire
