Love Grenades At Commonwealth Lounge – April 11th


Show me a lack of interest towards the indie electro genre, and I’ll show you the sounds of Love Grenades. Stunning singer/songwriter Elizabeth Wight originally wrote the songs as a side project, but the spike of positive response to their catchy licks, and Wight’s sultry singing has spiraled into getting her band discovered by Australian producer Sam Sparro. She and her fellow musicians with Beatmo collectively rocked the downtown at Commonwealth Lounge, 4/11.

 

The three piece band pulled off incredible stage presence and the crowd reciprocated with no hesitation by dancing to the upbeat rhythms. Wight played maracas and floor toms while singing, but her percussions were back by Finch drummer, Drew Marcogliese.

 

Love Grenades seem to draw much of their influences from artists like Blondie, The B-52’s, and  despite not hearing it their recordings, they seem to have sound reminiscent to Siouxie and the Banshees when playing live. Perhaps she’ll mix more punk into following recordings.
