South @ Union Hall: Soul Receivers

By theajaysharma

Last night marked South's first stop on their 2008 North American trek. The British trio is touring in support of their forthcoming senior release, You Are Here. While the evening focused on the aforementioned LP, South found time to integrate a slew of favorites from earlier efforts (most notably 'Colours In Waves' & 'Shallow') throughout their 60 minute set. It's rather daunting to realize that I've been adoring South for close to a decade. While similar artists that emerged around the same time frame (Coldplay, Doves, Travis) have experimented greatly with their core sound, South has managed to stay true to their original framework. Each album since South's debut record, From Here On In, has been more captivating & gripping than its preceding release. Visit South at the band's official MySpace page. Enjoy a handful of photos, the setlist & an MP3 of 'Better Things' below.Setlist: Up Close & Personal. The Pain. Tell Me. Paint The Silence. Opened Up. Loosen Your Hold. Wasted. Better Things. Colours In Waves. Motiveless Crime. You Are One. Shallow.Encore: Dolphins. - Source
