Crystal Fighters w/ Clubfeet @ Sydney, The Hifi

Crystal Fighters w/ Clubfeet @ Sydney, The Hifi Firstly, Clubfeet played a few songs before Crystal Fighters and can I just say I have never heard any of these guys original stuff, but after that performance they now have a new fan (and hopefully many more). Check out their track “Last Words” below along with their cover of Disclosures “Latch” and their remix of “Wave” by Crystal Fighters! Really good stuff, would love to see these guys take off.

I was pretty much front and centre when they came on stage and the lead singer, Sebastian, walks out in this odd hippie outfit with a sequinned veil over his head & banging 2 urn/pots together and from that point I knew it was going to be an interesting show. Sebastian, Crystal Fighters(Photo taken from the Crystal Fighters Instagram) These guys put out such an amazing energy, vibe and positivity which gets transferred into the audience, its really a spectacle to watch. At one point between songs the Guitarist, Graham, tells the everyone to turn left and right and hug someone that they’ve never seen/spoke to before, then asks us to “let the sun gods hear as many decibels as possible” by getting the crowd to cheer.

Every song has a much more hyped up tribal dance vibe and you just lose yourself in that moment. During the encore, they finished up with “Wave” and “I Love London” where the audience (including myself) just went nuts over. Really amazing performance and would definitely recommend anyone to not pass up the opportunity to see these guys perform.
