Having just released her first full-length album I Love You Like A Brother, Alex Lahey performed to a crowded Fat Controller on Friday, Oct 13.
Adelaide’s MANE brought her indie pop and blues laced vocals to a growing number of early comers. MANE is having her biggest year yet after releasing her massive single ‘What If The Love Dies’ which gained the songstress some much-deserved attention. MANE’s unique mix of blues and pop gained the attention of everyone in the room. With her fantastic new songs and captivating onstage presence, it seems the Adelaide talent will be moving to the next level in no time at all.
Next, Sloan Peterson made their Adelaide debut. Sloan Peterson is a love child of 50’s guitar pop and modern garage rock. The four-piece band got a great response with songs from their debut EP Midnight Love, while crowd-favourite ‘Good News Day’ saw an eruption from the audience.
Although it had only been out for one week, Alex Lahey’s latest album I Love You Like A Brother went over a treat with the Adelaide crowd. Highlights from the album included ballad ‘I Want U’, ‘Backpack’, ‘Perth Traumatic Stress Disorder’ and ‘Everyday’s The Weekend’.
Lahey gave the Adelaide crowd the honour of debuting the live performance of ‘Awkward Exchange’. The underrated hit of the album is easily ‘I Haven’t Been Taking Care Of Myself’ which got a mammoth response from everyone in the room.
Although Alex Lahey’s debut EP B-Grade University was fantastic, I Love You Like A Brother has added onto this familiar formula, each song has developed and brings something new. I Love You Like A Brother will cement the always humble Lahey’s position as one of Australia’s best upcoming artists.
The I Love You Like A Brother tour continues around Australia this weekend.
