Live from Capitol Hill Block Party, Day 2: Lemolo

photos by Morgen Schuler

Gleaming with crystalline textures and glowing melodies, Seattle’s Lemolo have been quietly developing their dreamy sounds across the past few years, but that growth has recently manifested itself in The Kaleidoscope, the duo’s full-length debut. Composed of Kendra Cox and Meagan Grandall, the Seattle pair have proven to be one of the fastest rising local bands in recent memory, selling out their Kaleidoscope release show at the Columbia City Theatre in only 11 hours and making numerous treks throughout the Pacific Northwest. Their time on the road has certainly helped them master replicating their gorgeous studio sounds in a live setting, and readied them for their Capitol Hill Block Party debut.

Lemolo’s set in Barboza for KEXP’s live broadcast was a stark contrast to Reignwolf—spare, open, and dark like the night sky, but no less intense in its way than Reignwolf. Also in contrast to their serious sound were the smiles of delight they cracked as they played, clearly enjoying the experience. And the packed audience was delighted as well.

You can catch Lemolo’s gorgeous sounds later this evening on the Vera Stage at 8:30.
