Jess Glynne played a sold out show at Atlanta’s Terminal West Thursday, Jan. 26. The soulful, Jess Glynne‘s breakthrough moment came in 2014, when she was featured in Clean Bandits’ “Real Love” and she has only skyrocketed from there to have grown into the truly astounding artist, with pop-dance beats interlaced as she breaks down genres to create her own place in music; with her debut album, I Cry When I Laugh. Glynne’s nearly sold-out US tour just ended, but “Hold My Hand” singer is tour endlessly throughout Europe through the middle of August. This is a bucket-list artist; you will want to see her when you can. Until then, check out her I Cry When I Laugh, give it a spin. It will not disappoint.

 

Jess Glynne’s set-list included: “Strawberry Fields,” “Ain’t Got Far to Go,” “Real Love/Finally/Rather Be,” “Home,” “Love Me,” “Gave Me Something,” “It Ain’t Right,” “Why Me,” “Bad Blood,” “My Love,” “Tears Dry on Their Own (Amy Winehouse cover),” “Take Me Home,” “You Can Find Me,” “No Rights No Wrongs,” “Don’t Be So Hard on Yourself” Encore included: “Right Here” and “Hold My Hand”

After supporting Panic! at the Disco on this summer’s Gospel Tour, Cincinnati indie rockers Walk the Moon set out on a tour of their own to support their upcoming release, Talking is Hard.  Starting in Seattle, Shut Up and Tour has made its way across the US over the month of October.  Atlanta was one of many sold-out stops along the way as the band made Terminal West their home once again.  Although there were many new fans in attendance, likely captivated by the band’s energy last time they performed in Atlanta just two months ago, it would be hard for anyone in attendance to be oblivious to the fact that the band has had a following for quite some time.  Adorned in face paint like the band members themselves, fans enthusiastically sang every word of hits such as “Tight Rope” and “I Can Lift a Car” from the band’s debut self-titled album, now a little over two years old. In addition to old favorites, Walk the Moon performed a handful of tracks from their upcoming album, including the massively popular single from which the tour borrowed its name, Shut Up and Dance.

It’s safe to say that fans left the venue excited that evening.  Excited for just having seen one of the best, most energetic performances they‘ve seen; excited for the release of Talking is Hard on Dec. 2; and excited for the band to return to Atlanta.

Walk the Moon are on tour through the first week of November, and play a handful of dates at the beginning of December. Click here to see if they are coming to your area and if tickets are available.

One word — infectious.

Odesza was trance-y and dreamy all night long.

Electronica and trance … Odesza, your formula works as well.

Gutsy and driving, Odesza creates growling bass and bop-along percussion.

Odesza’s new wave of electronica brings dancehall beats into the genre in a fresh and engaging way.

Deep swing beat and growling synths, there is still a sense of emotional wonder that ripples through the tracks.

Can we say, “Pulsing dance beats, trance synths?” Yes, we can!
