"Boo Seeka's sound now leans towards electronica, an impeccable evolution."

Sydneysider Jannah was the opener for the early Sunday performance, beginning with Ghosts. This gave the crowd a taste of her style, combining lyrical speed throughout the verses with soulful choruses. Her set included a couple of covers; Kendrick Lamar's Swimming Pools (Drank) was a highlight. Overall each song was very much like the last and some more diversity would have worked well.

Billy Fox kicked off with track Mystery, a piece dreamy electronica served with wistful vocals. After a few pieces Fox jumped on guitar to present the punters with a live selection. You was given an extended finish with Fox down on his knees.

The curtains opened to reveal Sydney twosome Boo Seeka in black muscle tanks. The combo gel well, mixing synth and soul. Ben Gumbleton switched from electric to acoustic guitar to give us Deception Bay, a real crowd favourite. Boo Seeka have clearly been busy as they played so many new tunes last night, and although almost no one had heard them before the crowd loved them straight away, cheering when Sam Croft synthed out the percussion. Other songs showed another side of Boo Seeka, with profound vocals and slower synthy sensual sounds. Announced as the song that made Boo Seeka quit their day jobs, Kingdom Leader was the pinnacle of the evening. A handful more tracks were played, all of which had been freshly put together, and if they were anything to go by Boo Seeka's sound now leans towards electronica, an impeccable evolution.
