Despite the blizzard that could potentially leave New York City covered in 12 inches of snow by the end of today, we're (mentally) slipping into summer with our latest Bands + Brews concert featuring the remarkable Epic-signee, Morgan Saint
. The concert took place last summer on a Saturday with gorgeous weather. It had been sweltering all day, but just in time to take the stage, the sun began to lower down and a cool breeze started to settle. A lot had been going on that day, too - located at Industry City, there were vintage sales, food vendors, and more, but amongst it all, NYC-based Morgan Saint didn't fail to become one of the main attractions.
Hot off the heels of the release of her debut EP 17 Hero,
Saint gave us glimmering performances of "For God's Sake" and "New Regime." Although she was reserved and a bit modest on the surface - after all, she only has an EP under her belt - she delivered an effortless cool confidence. Her sweet and delicate voice was backed by a mesh of synths and hard-hitting drums, as she sang about being "a different breed" - weirdos who will rise to the top. "We are lonely, but we are proud / We are outcasts, but we are brave," she continued to sing, resonating with the crowd, creating a tangible liberation that was very much felt in the air. After her performance we also had the chance to talk to the singer, who was quiet but incredibly sweet, perfectly matching the music she makes. Saint's songs are the perfect way to ring in the summer, with their anthemic hooks and unafraid honesty about being an outcast.
