X Ambassadors brought their Orion Tour to the UK this February on their way around Europe. The Orion Tour supports the New York-based bands new album titled the same and they brought their performance to Glasgow's own Óran mor. It was quite an intimate venue that X Ambassadors performed in that night.
They opened the first song on the track from their new album "Orion" - "Hey Child" which had the crowd singing along from the first beat, fans who have traveled through tonight for this event, all sharing their love for music tonight. The steady beat set the tone for the night and I was delighted when they started playing their next song. The beat is recognizable from the first beat and I couldn't help but tap my feet to the beat as I captured the action happening on stage. "Jungle" comes from a past album but carries no less impact to those that hear it, the bass is strong and rattles the core of all those that listen to it. This followed with another popular song from their new album "Boom" and there was no sign of this show slowing at all.
The band is made up of three - Sam Harris (vocals, sax, bass, drums, percussion), Casey Harris (piano, keyboard, backing vocals) and Adam Levin (drums, percussion). This trio don't seem to be showing any signs of stopping soon, they're taking Europe by storm.
