Sound 5 /5
Folky and delicious. A beautiful musical treat. The band kind of sounds like the lead singer of Coldplay joined Mumford and Sons. Satisfying ambient. Very pleasing. I found them to be very easy to listen to.
Lead singer Jon Matte doubles as the trumpet player making for an intimate and enjoyable show. He begins one of the songs with a lovely Latin riff on the trumpet. Their performance is inviting, making you want to get closer and the feel was mutual amongst the audience. It was wonderfully crowded.
Started conversing with the audience a tad too early, thought they were starting then boom long delay which as an audience member made me feel restless. However, they delivered a beautiful show.
Aesthetic 4 /5
Plaid pants are a bold choice on the acoustic guitarist other than that the band looks modest and endearing, creating a great look that doesn’t overpower the enchanting modesty of the music. They were lovely!
I really liked the environment they created. They were sincere and enthusiastic. They really appeared to be enjoying themselves. The songs were heartwarming and believable.
FINAL GRADE: 88%
