May 6th & 7th
It didn’t take long for the opening band Colouring, to take ahold of the crowd. Within seconds of their first song Symmetry the audience was swaying back and forth. The four-piece band of Londoners have figured out their balance of synth and real instruments, supported by frontman Jack Kenworthy’s smooth vocals. Their set goes from pop, to interludes of synthy-dubstep, to an emotional ballad with Kenworthy on the piano. Each song more captivating than the last drew in the ears of listeners in Denver’s Fillmore Auditorium and had everyone whispering to fellow concert goers to find out the name of the band. Their small following of fans is sure to blow up after this tour.
Colouring, signed to Interscope Records, have recently released a new single called The Wave, in addition to a music video for their song Heathen.
If you could hand pick the perfect opener for The 1975, it would be Pale Waves. With their nineties goth look in combination with their familiar sounding pop songs, the band brought the patient audience one step closer to The 1975. The Manchester natives easily excited the crowd with their set mainly filled with songs that are yet to be released, ending with their hit single There’s A Honey.
The guitar riffs, synthetic beats and catchy lyrics made it inevitable for anyone to stand still as Pale Waves embraced the stage as their own and warmed up the audience for memorable night. Take a few minutes and watch their new music video on the Pale Waves Vevo, for a quick taste of what their live performance is like, you’ll be hooked in no time!
