A heavy downpour did nothing to deter Chase Atlantic‘s faithful fans from coming out to see them perform at Paradise Rock Club on Monday night.

The Australian R&B-infused pop band Chase Atlantic have been touring all summer with opener Lauren Sanderson and were ready to close out their American tour with their last three dates — Boston, New York and Maryland. Sanderson kicked off the show promptly at 8, fascinating her fans with her every move.

Following her performance was Chase Atlantic. The trio, as recently as last year, were opening for their labelmate LIGHTS, but this go around they were the headliners. After a quick warning message appeared on their  three-piece LED stage set, a sea of phones synchronously rose ready to capture drummer Jesse Boyle, who led the charge for the band. The crowd of several hundred crowding around the stage and the balcony erupted as he made his way on stage and performed a short drum solo with a light show timed perfectly behind him.

To place a genre or style of concert is hard to do as Chase Atlantic’s music took their fans through a litany of styles from singing as if it were an R&B concert to jumping up and down with their hands in the air. No matter the track, the crowd was fixated in an awe and allure of seeing their favorite artist in person.

Hot off of their newest release Phases, the band played both new songs and old, fitting for the crowd full of recent fans and day ones.  Mesmerized looks came from older folks, younger fans and, oddly enough, a service dog in attendance. Tracks like “LOVE IS (NOT) EASY,” “Drugs & Money”, “Swim,” “HER” and more rang off through the speakers of Paradise Rock Club all the while the words to every song rolled of the tongues of those in the crowd. 

Following almost an hour of straight music, Chase Atlantic dipped off stage and yet the lights remained low. Chants of “One more song!” reverberated through the venue, bringing the band out for another track to close it out. The band is in New York tonight and then Maryland. Following this tour, they will be setting off on their European tour with tickets going on sale this Friday.
