Catapulted from years of abject obscurity in the Irish midlands, Adela and the Meanits are quickly gaining a reputation as “one of the best, quirky and most original acts to hit the Irish scene in years” (Stage Left)
Having recently played the world famous music and arts festival, Electric Picnic 09, Adela and the Meanits are set to release their debut album just in time for next years summer festivals.
Prior to the formation of The Meanits, Adela and her nylon string guitar, Fancy Pants, pottered about the Irish music scene. Her sound was likened to “Sesame Street on craic” after the release of her first demo ‘Party for Three’, which has “hit written all over it” according to John Creedon of RTE Radio 1.
Nominated as Best Female at the Balcony TV Awards 07, and described as the "new queen of the local indie scene" by Hot Press, Adela has also made a weird and wonderful video with the New York Film University as seen on Dave Fanning’s The Last Broadcast.
Their music has been likened to Madness, Sultans of Ping and Lily Allen, but comparisons aside, Adela and the Meanits have an infectious, happy buzz in their sound.
