Florence + The Machine & The XX @ Esplanade Theatre SG, 07.02.10

Headed down south to catch Florence + Machine and The XX live a week before Lunar New Year.

I was very impressed by The XX's laidback and effortless performance. Many people may argue they lacked showmanship, but they made addictive music out of such bare melodies and simple instrumentation, which somehow made me wanted to hear more. "Less is more" is best to describe The XX!

Florence + The Machine, on the other hand, was a total opposite of The XX, her performance was full of energy and constant interactions with the crowd. Everyone at the venue was so blown away by her powerhouse vocals and bubbly attitude, and started to dance and jump around in the theatre. Highlight of the night was when she borrowed a polaroid camera to snap photograph of the happy fans.

Two contrastly different bands but equally awesome live.
