Shlohmo and fellow WEDIDIT label members Purple and Nick Melons played Irving Plaza on a sunny April 11th in NYC.
Although the weather was bright outside, a step into Irvin Plaza and you were greeted by an almost gothic darkness, eased by the three performers’ widescreen textures and dust-clogged beats. Nick Melons opened the night with an array of evolving synths and metal guitar wails and was followed by Portugese producer Purple (who FACT TV bumped into at this year’s SXSW in Austin).
When the smoked cleared, Shlohmo and his live band hit the stage bringing a longing gothic romance punctuated by chunky rhythms and melancholy guitar, exhibiting the same energy we heard on his brand new album Dark Red.
