Lewis Del Mar Gets “Loud(y)” In Dallas

Lewis Del Mar, fronted by Danny Miller and Max Harwood, opened a sold-out show for Børns at Granada Theater in Dallas, TX on June 6th. The duo was joined on stage by their friends, who all sound absolutely amazing together. They opened the show with “Memories,” which immediately captured the attention of the audience. As their set went on they continued to amaze everyone with their raw yet energetic music. It seemed like this show was the first time many people in the audience had heard of them, but they definitely left a lasting impression on them. At one point the girl behind me excitedly asked, “Do you know who this is?” to which I proudly replied, “Lewis Del Mar, they’re amazing!”

I had been waiting to see these guys for a while, so to see them play to a sold-out crowd in Dallas was great. Seeing them on stage was unlike anything else, as you could tell how passionate they truly were about performing. I don’t think Max stopped smiling for even a brief second while drumming! As captivating as their set was, the second they started playing “Loud(y),” their most well-known song, I knew the show was about to be over. I immediately wished I was going to get to see them again soon as I had fallen in love with their music even more.

Overall, their set ranks as one of the best that I have seen. It had everything you could ever want in a show and more. I highly recommend everyone go and see them when they play near you.

Atlas Genius’ Show Was “A Perfect End” To A Tuesday Night

Last Tuesday, April 26th, Australian indie-rock band Atlas Genius captivated Dallas fans with a show we all wished would never end. The band opened the show with their latest single, “Stockholm,” and from the very beginning radiated with energy. On this particular night, there was bad weather with the possibility of tornadoes, but it didn’t seem to phase the band or even the fans as the crowded venue was focused on having a good time.

Atlas Genius previously mentioned they were trying out a few songs they hadn’t played live before, and it was definitely a good decision. “Where I Belong,” one of these new songs, mesmerized the audience, and it may have been one of the best songs of the night. Keith swapped his guitar for a tambourine and took the audience to another level. This song also showed how important the band’s lighting was. Atlas Genius’ live set has been known for the amazing light show that compliments their wonderful songs, and they once again wowed the audience with it. The transition from “The Stone Mill” into “Molecules,” one that fans go crazy for, was accompanied by a series of flashing lights that would amaze anyone. Little things like this just added to the overall charisma and charm of their set.

Later on in the night Atlas Genius did 3 covers, 2 of which were unexpected. They covered “Everybody Wants To Rule The World,” “Hotline Bling,” and “The Hills,” which they have a recorded version of. The crowd seemed to get a bit nostalgic when they began the Tears For Fears cover and everyone sang along loudly. Next was their cover of Hotline Bling. When I heard that they were going to cover Hotline Bling, I was initially very nervous because it is a song I strongly dislike, but they killed it. Something about the way they made it their own made it more enjoyable. After their “last song” the guys returned to the stage for an encore which included “The Hills,” and they definitely made that song their own. This was a special song to me as I have loved their cover since they released a recorded version of it in November. If a cover could be perfect then it would be this one. It was very popular with the audience, especially since it was a song almost everyone knew. All three of these covers showcased not only the band’s versatility but also their talent since these weren’t songs one would think Atlas Genius would cover.

During the night Keith made sure to make his way around the stage and to interact with fans, as did Blake (Straus) and Alex (Marans).  Keith’s alluring vocals mixed with his strong interaction with the crowd made for the perfect show. This was one of the best shows I have been to as it bypassed my expectations greatly. Not only are the guys in Atlas Genius extremely talented, but they are also very genuine, which seems to be a rare thing nowadays. I highly recommend seeing these guys live if you get the chance. You may even find your new favorite band.
