The Sian Alice Group close SXSW NME day party
Spiritualizedï¿½s protegeï¿½s play shimmering set in the sun
The Sian Alice Group closed the NME SXSW day party at the Wave bar today (March 15) with a set of shimmering sophisto-pop that had crowd member clamouring to shower praise on the band as the finished.
Singer Sian Ahern, a protï¿½gï¿½ of Spiritualizedï¿½s Jason Pierce, was battling a sore throat, and swigged strong medicine between songs to battle her ailment.
However, the state of her throat didnï¿½t affect the impact of the bandï¿½s performance, and Ahern led the troupe through a four-song set of impressive bluster-pop.
Ending the set with ï¿½Motionlessï¿½, the band were immediately mobbed by fans as they laid down their instruments, with one even attempting to have a swig of Ahernï¿½s medicine.
The Sian Alice Group played:
ï¿½Way Down To Heavenï¿½
