July Talk @ MacEwan Hall

July Talk

July Talk is one of those bands that can truly captivate an audience. With the contrast between the raspy vocals of Peter Dreimanis and the sweet voice of Leah Fay, along with an interpersonal dynamic and improvised theatrics between the two that is captivating. The two wasted no time immediately leaving the stage to stand on the speakers to great the capacity crowd at McEwan Hall. Dreimanis started the night off on keyboards as the band launched the set with “Picturing Love”, one of their offering of their latest album “Touch”. It was a heavily backlit affair as what spotlights shot out from the back of the stage, with a minimal front of house lighting. Yeah captivated the audience as she danced along with the music. July Talk is one of those band that I can honestly say has to been seen live, and are truly great performers and musicians.
