SXSW: Jonquil, March 15, Latitude 30

Jonquil

Austin – Jonquil was awesome. Playing a packed house at the British Embassy, the Oxford group trio brought their keyboard driven soaring melodies to Austin and brought the house down. The band, comprising of Hugo Manuel, Sam Hudson Scott and Robin McDiarmid used keyboards, guitars and the occasional horns to create a fully layered summery sound that only seemed to be strenghtened with Hugo Manuel’s vocals, who seemed to remind me of Elbow’s Guy Harvey. A kickass rocking cover of The XX’s Infinity put a nice finishing touch to stellar show. Check out their debut EP One Hundred Suns, available now off Dovecote Records.
