Another sold out gig at Perth's Jack Rabbit Slims had people searching for tickets on the event all week and caused a line down the street on the night. The venue was more than full and the energy waiting for the guys to come out on stage was building.
Boo Seeka kicked off the night with a new track that had been meshed into the song ‘Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This)’, which showcased their live performance off the bat. Live guitar, synths, vocals, and drum pads with a set of decks to play anything that couldn’t be emulated in their live show. Boo Seeka would sound awesome with a live drum kit and a few more live members.
Next up was a new track that had been recently written on their trip in Europe called ‘Argo Misty’. You have to hear these guys live at some point. The live vibratos in the vocals are stunning and gave me shivers all the way down my spine. For a genre of music I would consider to be pretty chilled, they had an insane energy on that stage, completely owned it and it transferred through all of us.
The rest of their set included their Triple J Like A Version, which was a cover of MØ 'Pilgrim’, a clear crowd favorite that was paired up with ‘Deception Bay’ the other track they played for us live on the jays. More sneaky peaks of what to come, they spun us some extra fresh tunes, which was very different to their current releases. A little bit heavier, rockier, but awesome! The crowd loved it and we were left wanting more of the new sound we had just heard from the dynamic duo.
Throughout the set the guys were extremely thankful, they couldn’t believe how big the following here in Perth has grown in only 6 months since their last gig at Jack Rabbits. They ended the night with ‘Kingdom Leader’; the crowd was both equally happy and sad to hear this track, knowing it would be their last and the end of the set.
I’m super stoked to hear all of the new releases. The guys have been developing their sound and it’s absolutely amazing. Keep an eye out for their new tracks and don't miss these guys again!
