UK duo Disclosure caught our ears with some great releases last year, including The Face EP, and kept things going this year with their excellent single, “White Noise,” which features AlunaGeorge. I went to catch them at the official Pitchfork SXSW showcase at 1100 Warehouse last night (3/14), and as with many of these post-dubstep artists, and especially those who rely on guest vocalists that don’t perform live with them, it’s hard not to wonder how much of a “show” it will really be. So I was taken pretty off guard when Disclosure opened their set with a song that they sang on. They didn’t sing any others after that (relying on samples and recorded versions of their guest singers) but the show continued to be something you could “watch” as well as a huge dance party.

They use a fair amount of live percussion which keeps things interesting too, and when they played songs like “White Noise” and “What’s In Your Head” the crowd was going wild. When I first wrote about Disclosure, I mentioned that I didn’t foresee them headlining a place like Terminal 5 any time soon (which their friend SBTRKT did), but after seeing what their live show is capable of last night, I’m pretty sure I was way wrong.

Disclosure don’t play T5 just yet, but they will be in NYC for two shows next week at Music Hall of Williamsburg on Wednesday (3/20) and Bowery Ballroom on Thursday (3/21). Both of those shows are sold out.
