Love Grenades at Silver Lake Jubilee, Sunday 22nd

rock nyc profiled Love Grenades on their visit to the city back in November 2009. We predicted big things for the dance band and then nothing.

Years later and here they are again.

There is something really sexy about a girl in a mini dress, playing drums in the front of the stage with that much assurance, while standing, singing and dancing. Love Grenades’ front lady Elizabeth Wight with her two musicians on synth and drums, played a energetic disco-dance set at the Silver Lake Jubilee on Sunday night.

Her stage presence is probably what was the most fascinating of the set, because she has tons of charisma and was certainly using all her charms to move gracefully on stage, dancing on the 70s-80s-infused beats of her music.

The music, guitar-free but heavy on dark synth and heavy beats, sounded as dark as a Depeche Mode’s tune or as groovy as a Blondie’s song. Electro-disco pop is usually not my cup of tea but her impressive performance and her catchy songs and moves were just hard to resist to. Her dance floor formulas were obviously a real success among festival-goers and I could see some men front raw who were following each of her sexy moves.
 

Some songs were total Saturday night fever disco revivals with a darker side, others were more about this dark synth played by her blonde counterpart who was also doing the back-up vocals.

Wight writes, records an arranges all her songs, and started the band as a side project, a project which became very soon extremely successful, packing shows in Los Angeles and New York City.

‘I smell weed’, she said to the bewitched crowd… ‘That’s bad!’ she added with a malicious smile. She is a talker, and addresses the public as she sings and dances, with confidence and a little audacity, She concluded the show with a new and quite catchy song, she has ‘just put on the internet’, She was not sure of the title, but it may just be ‘Pressure’
