Live Review: Deep Sea Arcade @ The Zoo, Brisbane 27.09.2013

There was a scattering of keen punters who showed for Morning Harvey’s welcoming set, and they were treated for their efforts. Droning reverbs were wafting through The Zoo, with touches of desert guitars and airy vocals holding their audience captive.

These Brisbane lads have only just begun their quest for hearts, it seems, and showcased their best for the growing audience. If you missed them, check out their tracks “Sundown” and current single “Well For Wishes” and start planning for their next appearance.

Hey Geronimo bounced on stage after a lengthy break, introducing new faces to those fans who had not seen them in action since they updated their members. They kicked off proceedings with their Opened with new single “Lazer Gun Show” and followed it up with older favourites from their EP, or newer tracks tried on fresh ears. Each song had the crowd dancing without shame, and screams filled the time between songs. Hey Geronimo also boasted a brass duo, intended for their overzealous song “I Got No Money” and stayed on until the finale “Why Don’t We Do Something?”. While the same songs might be there, there is a slightly different experience with this new, fresh-faced Hey Geronimo, and their high enthusiasm still remains.

Those recognisable notes set the pace for an extended introduction to the evening’s headliners; Deep Sea Arcade burst on stage with an extended version of “Seen No Right”, to which the audience erupted in thankful cheers. They jumped from recognisable single to lesser known, low key numbers, giving special attention to the carefully crafted psych-rock jams they are becoming known for. Their latest single “Black Cat” was well received – power guitar strums urged great mosh jumping, and frontman Nic Weaver looked all too tempted to join them on the ground. Other standout tracks include “Lonely In Your Arms” which was a singalong (read: raucous screaming) highlight, and “The Devil Won’t Take You”, which casts minds to the hazy soundscapes of The Doors. It’s always a wonderful reminder of the longstanding talent of this band when they play their older hit “Girls”, which epitomises their dreamy surf sounds as well as their live presence. No singing required, just swaying bodies and hands, taking it all in.
