Aqueous Debuts New Songs In Asheville


Aqueous rolled through Asheville Music Hall in Asheville, North Carolina on Friday night. The groove rock purveyors would pepper live debuts of every song from their recently released EP, Burn It Down, throughout the concert.

Aqueous kicked things off with “Kitty Chaser (Explosions)” which led into the first debut of the night, “On The Edge,” the closing track on the EP. After “Be The Same,” the band offered up their first cover of the evening with “Sunflower” by Vampire Weekend for just the fourth time since unveiling the song in their hometown of Buffalo and included it on a playlist of songs that inspired the EP. “Sunflower” also contained a little foreshadowing with a “Dave’s Song” tease. The four-piece continued with another debut in “Little Something To Me” before closing the set with “Split The Difference” into “Skyway.”

Aqueous got the second set underway with the debut of the title track from Burn It Down followed by “Weight Of The World” into “Triangle,” which contained a tease of Rage Against The Machine’s “Bombtrack.” A cover of Gorillaz‘ “DARE” came next which then segued into “Aldehyde.” “All In” would close out the second set. Aqueous retook the stage for the final reveal of the night with “Come And Go” to start the encore before finishing up “Dave’s Song” to close out the evening.
