Please enjoy photos and a belated (my fault!) review of last Friday's Hey Marseilles show at the Showbox, by photographer Beth Crook for The Stranger...
Five years after releasing their debut album, To Travels And Trunks, Hey Marseilles played to a sold-out crowd at the Showbox Market on March 1st, unveiling their latest album Lines We Trace.
Opening the night was Pollens, who played a set of harmony-rich and boldly layered pop songs. They were followed by Y La Bamba, who showcased plenty of dance worthy latin-inspired pop sounds—a perfect opener for this Friday night show.
It was Hey Marseilles, though, that brought the crowd down—got them swooning to songs from both their debut album (like crowd favorite "Rio") and then clapping along to new melodies from Lines We Trace. The new album seems like it's going to be just as amazingly orchestral and pop filled as their last.
