On “How to make friends”, the trio underlines their status as Iceland’s electro-pop export #1. The songs kick where they should, are catchy, sometimes sweet, sometimes full of verve and sometimes relaxed. FM Belfast unite the best elements of popular acts like The Knife and add their very own character to the mix, which is also a result of the very adequate vocals of Lóa Hjálmtýsdottir and her pack. On this point you would also excuse the quite Dadaistic lyrics about designated drivers or daughters of presidents. However, every song on “How to make friends” is entertaining and stays in your mind for a long time. Not to mention that this records offers everyone the chance to dance. Just listen to that Snap cover, “Pump”.
- The Verdict : Highly dancable electro-pop.
