Armed with only her cello and loop pedal, Kelsey Lu furthered the unique sonic wash that serpentwithfeet embarked the audience on. Where serpentwithfeet used orchestra instrumentation to fill his sound, Kelsey Lu’s performance was bare and haunting. Her mysteriously yearning soprano voice accentuated the deep bass vibrations of her instrument and cast a spell on the audience who sat entranced by her soothing melodies.

It doesn’t surprise me that her solo debut EP, Church, was recorded in a Brooklyn church. Her music can only get more mystical, more sensual, with the natural reverb of her sonics bouncing off walls and filling a room with high ceilings. With the spotlight shining down from The Palace’s ceiling, and her hair fashioned to shade her face from the light, the visual imagery of her performing in her own dark space added even more mysticism to her performance. The roses lines at her feet, though a simple stage decoration, reaffirmed my sense that her music was rooted in the natural and organic, devoid of filler and the unnecessary.

I easily could have closed my eyes and allowed her music to whisk me off into a slumbering, dream infused state, but I was captivated, not only by her sound, but also by the subtle sways and hand gestures that her music elicited from her.

A highlight of her performance was her unique cover of The Shirelle’s “Will Love You Tomorrow”. As she sang, “Tonight you’re mine, completely. You Give your love so sweetlly,” I could only nod my head in agreement.
