Review: City & Colour at Brighton Dome

City & Colour

City & Colour

Indietronica had the privilege of watching City & Colour (aka Dallas Green) perform in Brighton last month at the first show of his recent UK tour.

Those of you who have been following City & Colour over the last ten years will recognise that they’ve taken a more country-based turn in their musical direction, and the show in Brighton mainly focused on material from their new album, ‘if i should go before you’.

It wasn’t until the end of the set that the old classics (and still the best, in our opinion) were performed by Dallas with a glass of whisky by his side.

It’s pretty impressive that one man and his band can conduct a whole audience into silence with an array of country, rock, acoustic and blues. However, and despite the beautiful lighting, we can’t help but think the performance was slightly stale in comparisons to previous shows we have attended.

‘if i should go before you’ is out now via Dine Alone Music and available for purchase at their store.

Born Joy Dead – Chains on You

Born Joy Dead

Born Joy Dead

Born Joy Dead is the new project of Brisbane musician Ben Dalton (also the bassist for Hungry Kids of Hungary).

The video for their latest single ‘Chains on You’ features Sigourney Waver, a remote control surfer babe. The video was produced and directed by two fifths of Brisbane beach-pop outfit The John Steel Singers (Luke McDonald & Scott Bromiley) and features the BJD boys admiring Waver’s sick moves as she shreds her way through the standstill waters of her prisons…but a bathtub, or even a pool, is much too small to ever cage the heart of a surfer.

ADIAM – Desert Island

ADIAM

ADIAM

ADIAM is a Swedish singer living in Berlin. The name ADIAM means powerful and complete.

Her video for ‘Desert Island’ was released at the same time as ‘Dark Lake’ and follows a theme of simple, water-based videos filmed in black and white.

Although we know little else about ADIAM, we get the sense that she lives up to her name.

‘Desert Island’ has been taken from the ‘Dark Lake’ EP, out on iTunes and released via Vertigo/Capitol. She is currently signed to Universal Germany.

Patternist – Gone

Patternist

Patternist

Patternist (aka Gabe Mouer) is a Portland based DIY electro pop multi-instrumentalist and songwriter.

You may recognise his voice as he was a co-founder of the Portland band The Welcome Home, who’ve previously opened up for The Ataris and Train. This would explain the emo-tinged synthpop sound he has produced with his Patternist project.

He’s begun a new singles campaign with the MuseBox, where he’ll be releasing new music and accopanying videos at the rate of one per month.

Check out the latest track, ‘Gone’.
