Wondering what acts you should see next? Well you’re in luck! I’ve sorted out my top 3 acts from 2014’s Bigsound Live, and two of them are from Brisbane! It is excellent to see so many incredible acts coming out of Brisbane’s busy music scene.
Even though this band has only been around for a handful of gigs, they have a huge amount of experience because they have all played in other Brisbane bands ranging from The Jungle Giants to Moses Gun Collective. Their live performance is reminiscent of early Split Enz. The raw energy, the grooving dancing and the overall tightness of sound was impressive. The set consistently made the crowd jump along with the music from intense start to Orphan finish.
Wow. Felicity Groom’s voice is simply phenomenal. Distinctly Australian and playing an incredible haze of alt rock with a smooth fringe of electronic music, Felicity’s music is unique. Despite her guitarist ripping his fingers open while smashing out a driving beat on the drumkit, the set was consistently impressive. Black Bear Lodge was packed full of punters coming to see this talent on display and there is no doubt she is on the rise.
The Creases have been busy supporting their debut EP, and their set in New Globe Theatre showcased their latest songs with a slight injection of older tracks like I Won’t Wait. As most Brisbane punters know, The Creases bring the power. Their sets are consistently tight, and tonight was no exception. They packed out the theatre before they had even struck a chord and their grooving tracks moved the crowd.
