The first show of Electronic Beats’ Fall season began with a bang. Synth-pop trio Kate Boy preceded performances by R&B songstress Jessie Ware and electronic supergroup Moderat. The particular Stockholm group’s debut EP, Northern Lights, was released early in 2013, and since then they’ve rarely taken their foot off the gas, committing to a grueling international touring schedule. Electronic Is better than TV were there to catch the action in Podgorica as Kate Boy married catchy hooks along with dark, punchy basslines in a effective live performance. Enjoy renditions of ”Lion Of Real, ” “Self Control, ” and “The Way We Are” in advance of the group’s first record, and read our backstage statement from Podgorica for more photos plus interviews from the front line.
Electronic Beats’ Fall festival season continues with appearances from James Blake, Caribou and more. Verify our full listings for information.
