If you had enough energy from the long holiday weekend to make it out for KCRW’s “It’s a School Night”, then you were lucky enough to catch rising indie-pop act Milo Greene play an intimate session at the Bardot in Hollywood.
The quartet brought a full crowd to the aesthetically pleasing venue and played their most recognizable tracks, including their catchy hit, “1957”. The show highlighted some of what’s to come in the band’s first full-length album, which is due to drop in the very near future. A favorite of the night was their rendition of Sufjan Stevens’ “Chicago”, which the harmonizing act was able to pull off in an impressive manner, even making it unique to their own distinct style.
Milo Greene’s airy and organic sounds made it very easy to get lost in their music and after a few songs, it almost felt as though you were watching them play in the middle of a house party. The band mates joked and laughed throughout their set, teasing Marlana (female vocals) for losing her voice and celebrating Andrew’s (male vocals) birthday. Each member brings something distinct and significant to the band; although they have the talent to stand apart from one another, there’s something magical in Milo Greene’s seamless collaboration.
If you missed their show, you have many chances to see them in February 2012 when they kick off their residency at the Satellite in Silverlake.
