Reminiscing on our first Lagoon X Inter:Mission event with some of our favourite photos and thoughts on the performances...
After forming earlier this year La-Z-Eye have already established themselves as romantic, Apple-product infused, futuristic pop superstars. Between reading existentialist literature on stage, literally writhing on the floor and flirting with the audience, La-Z-Eye smashed it as always, confusing and seducing an adoring crowd.
Francesca’s set was breath-taking to say the least. Lyrical vulnerability combined with a super fierce aggressive delivery made for an intoxicating performance. Her voice is stunning and her style of delivery flickers between strong and soft at a moment’s notice. This incredible woman is one to watch out for.
Alfie calmly sit’s down, ready to enthral the audience with softly sung words and melodic guitar. His set is calming, considered and generally really, very lovely. It is described best by his own words; “soul food for effeminate males”.
On their debut-performance, new kids on the block Jambi did not disappoint. After limited practice time as a group, the gifted quartet delivered a hypnotic display that instantly won the hearts of those in the audience. As a band with no exclusive muse, a variety of genres ran free. Glued together by the unerring drums of Brook Plumptre; front men Charlie Forrest and Simon Niang indulged in ethereal guitar riffs and enchanting vocals, accompanying the complimentary grooves of Marko Cubric on the keys. The result? A blend holding jazz, funk and alternative rock influences; irresistibly catchy, yet dangerously conducive to teenage heartache. Watch this space.
Bursting onto the scene with an eclectic mix of 90's Arabian rhythms and Habibi funk classics, Jaydon Moller-Clark of SIKALradio gave us an energetic, diverse and all-round killer performance. From listening to his radio shows, I knew to expect dance songs that spanned all genres and I wasn't disappointed. Jaydon managed to seamlessly integrate the likes of The Tom Tom Club's new wave jam, 'Wordy Rappinghood' with Ihsan Al Munzer's belly dance disco tune 'Jamileh', giving us a completely fresh, and unique take on a dance music set. His energy was palpable, and the crowd was hooked. Looking forward to seeing more of this man!
See you next time....
