It's almost the end of 2017. And if this year has been a soul crushing one for you, then Sick Burn is your new mantra. A mantra to pick yourself up, hug your friends, and tough out the vileness that life can throw you.

It's been a difficult year for Mega Emotion's Jan, Lisa and Iain too. Facing illness, death and heartache, the friends (since school) turned up their instruments and wrote a slow-building hymn to friendship and optimism in a totally bleak world.

Mega Emotion play drums and percussion over electronic beats and build walls of sound that loop dirty baselines against pumping synths and scuzzy guitars. They wear floor-length ceremonial robes, with faces dusted in glitter and stars swept through their hair.

The band’s self-released debut BRAINS won Steve Lamacq’s Roundtable on BBC 6 Music. Their demo material has been championed by BBC Introducing and played by DJs including John Kennedy, Mark Radcliffe, Tom Robinson, Tom Ravenscroft, and Nemone.

'Part Pixies noise-fest, part 80s synth sunset. I fucking love this song. It makes me want to rip out my sh*Tty broken spine and flop around on a dance floor having fun.' The 405 (Single of the week)

'Death star dance action' Steve Lamacq (BBC 6 Music)

'Robed like some weird cult....Throbbing Gristle meets Young Fathers' Outline Magazine

“Sounds like: A mad genetic experiment between Casiokids and Blondie.” Click Music (Track of the day)

Mega Emotion have played for John Kennedy’s (Radio X) Remedy showcase in London, and supported the likes of Shonen Knife, Thumpers, Lonelady and Yuck.

The trio have recorded their debut album, tentatively titled MOVE, M0THERF*CKER in the darkest depths of Norfolk at Sickroom Studios and hope to release it next year.


...there's more to you than just this one year...
...there's always been a place for you here...
