Last week saw the return of BIGSOUND Music and Conference. TheÂ festival brought together an incredible lineup for three nights of music across multiple Fortitude Valley venues.
Here’s four of the best performances that I caught at this year’sÂ event.
Lupa J is a classically trained violinist who produces electronic indie music. Her technical skill partners beautifully with her flair for production.Â This setÂ was a standout because of the sheer power behind eachÂ element of the performance. Lupa JÂ possesses aÂ powerful voice and impressiveÂ precision on the violin.Â If ever you get the chance to seeÂ Lupa JÂ perform live, make sure you don’t miss it.
The Creases’Â BIGSOUNDÂ appearance was nothing short of what we’ve come to expect from the Brisbane boys. They brought their debut album,Â Tremolow,Â to stage with a high energy, entertaining performance.Â The CreasesÂ were simply fun to watch,Â and that of course, is why you go to a music festival. It wouldn’t be a surprise to see them enjoying major success overseas in the near future.
Winston SurfshirtÂ absolutely packed outÂ Wooly Mammoth’sÂ Mane Stage, and it wasn’t hard to see why.Â Their performance of Be About You was met with one of the festival’s most excited audience reactions, and the performance itself certainly didn’t disappoint. Winston SurfshirtÂ proved that they know how to have and host a good time.
Last but certainly not least, isÂ Aurelia.Â AureliaÂ earned her spot on this list with her enchantingÂ vocals.Â Aurelia’s set saw the first performance of her new singleÂ Are We Losing, which was nothing short of incredible.Â The set has leftÂ us incredibly excited to see what she has to come in the future.
