The band took the stage during the hum of synths to begin “Nightshot” off their August 2010 release Getting Down From the Trees. By the third song in, they launched confidently into “Nice to Meet You,” which has been getting airplay in the States. The groove follows a guitar solo into a pure pop melody, only to crash into a instrumental break before the chorus. The shiny romanticism of “Defenceless” followed and the mood shifted into jazz riffs. Between songs, Papu thanked the crowd for coming many times and sheepishly acknowledged it was their first time in New York. The catchy tune “Fireworks” ended the set, fresh off this year’s itunes compilation for Rising Stars: Latin, but Polock has a widespread appeal for all.
