Electric Guest captivates at sold-out Fine Line

Los Angeles based band Electric Guest, with support from Soleima, brought the heat on a bitterly cold night.

Soleima

Danish singer Soleima opened with an entertaining set. She engaged the crowd by dancing back and forth across the stage. She even joined the fans halfway through a song and finished it in the crowd, dancing and jumping along with them.

While she played some of her classics, such as “Low Life” and “Cracks,” her newest single “Roses,” which was released at the end of January, was a high point.

Her sound is hard to pin down. She takes parts and pieces from genres like synth-pop and R&B to create a unique niche. Her voice also sets her apart. Its light and airy tone effortlessly floats atop her unconventional rhythms. If she isn’t on your radar, she should be.

Electric Guest

Asa Taccone and Matthew Compton are the brains behind Electric Guest. Their combination of pop and R&B creates catchy beats that are hard to shake.

The duo opened with “Play With Me which easily transitioned into “The Bait and “Get Out.” With the stage cleared down the center, Taccone was able to freely groove along the entire length of it. And with songs like theirs, how could you not want to?

During their song “Dollar,” Taccone threw fake money into the crowd. He explained that they had originally started off with real money, something they quickly decided was not going to logistically work at every show. The crowd loved it, grasping in the air for a souvenir.

Electric Guest have established themselves as a mainstay in their genre. If this show is any indication, they will no doubt continue to get bigger.
