Based between Des Moines and Iowa City, KAREN MEAT is the genre-hopping project of ARIN EATON. The Karen Meat band is a moody character; like a sequined oversized sweater, crooning melodies and lyrics of a bored generation. You’re an Ugly Person expands on Karen Meat’s November 2016 tape release, She’s Drunk Like The Rest Of Us. An EP that saw Eaton steer away from her DSM band forays (with Brad Turk, John Huffman) as Eaton collaborates with her business partner, DANA TELSROW. Glittering with memorable beats, '60s-girl-pop inspired vocals, sprinkled with guitar flights of fancy from Dana, and topped off with co-ordinated outfits. Together Eaton and Telsrow have toured the US, and as anyone who has witnessed will testify, create a phenomenal, cannot miss, live show through delightful co-ordinated chaos. Realistically, pop songs should be fun AND sad. Karen Meat embraces the power of rejection and depression as themes for her music, and her upbeat tunes are gems of sarcasm and truth.
