In contrast to Glass Animals’ Rainbow Dreamland set, which was full of light and positive vibes, Sad Night Dynamite’s show at the Murat Theatre in Indianapolis was dark and edgy, with a good dose of anger and angst thrown in. Which is not to say I didn’t enjoy it, because I did. Although I didn’t catch most of the lyrics (they were fast and sung with a British accent), the quality of the music and showmanship were top notch. I mean, anyone who can make music with a bullhorn and have it not begimmicky certainly deserves props!
The music created by the duo from the U.K., which consists of Josh Greacen and Archie Blagden, doesn’t really fit into any genre. If you can imagine a mash-up of Gorillaz and twenty one pilots, you’d be close But then you’d have to rub it in the smoke and grime of an after-hours club to really capture the essence.

Sad Night Dynamite will be on tour with Glass Animals through the end of March – catch them while you can!
