Fun and positive vibes were the name of the game at a bouncing Foundry in Fortitude Valley (Brisbane) on Friday night (7 June).
In town to promote latest single 'Close To You', Melbourne beatmaker Alice Ivy was to play the penultimate show on a nine-stop tour in style. But if she was tired from yet another sizeable national tour, it certainly didn't show.
First up was Gold Coast producer DVNA, who played a fun, earnest and endearing set to a filling Foundry, while taking time to thank her audience for coming along. Among a swag of smooth tracks, 'Girl On The Move' stood out as a soulful, glistening pop gem.
Next came Miss Blanks, who dialled the sass up several hundredfold and truly got the party started in her typically brash and entertaining fashion.
Between tracks the Brisbane rapper, and past Alice Ivy collaborator, was genuinely funny and self-deprecating, with set highlight 'This Bitch' bringing together everything good about her act: lyrical savviness, humour, profanity, and solid hip hop chops.
This gig, however, was all about Alice Ivy.
The Victorian producer and multi-instrumentalist was in top form from the get-go, as the audience increasingly let loose on a Friday night. Switching between guitar, bass, electronics and more, she showed off her range across a collection of tracks from her debut album 'I'm Dreaming'.
But it was single 'Close To You' that we were here to witness in the flesh. The track, a poised and slick electronic pop number, went down a storm.
The good vibes increased with Alice Ivy thanking and expressing her love to everyone for coming, with fans returning the love many times over as the set came to a climax and a night of celebratory electronic pop came to a close with a sea of smiling faces spilling onto the street.
