The Low Anthem's live show is captivating and inspiring - every time I see them, I leave in awe. The band makes organic, beautiful music that is breathtaking in its purity. I had the pleasure of seeing them twice recently; the April 20 show from the Paradise in Boston was documented via a crystal clear soundboard recording. I'm now happy to share some excellent video from the Portland Maine show that took place just two days later. The combination of a dimly lit stage and brightly backlit backdrop make for tough video conditions - but, with some added effects, I think the result is striking. The band, cast in sepia tones and playing the melancholy "To The Ghosts Who Write History Books" against a backdrop of pulsing electric blue creates a startling contrast.
There may be more videos to come from this show - stay tuned, and enjoy.
