The Hype: In the middle of a successful pack of U.S. club dates, the down-tempo Danes of Quadron are quickly becoming Copenhagen's brightest aural export since, uh…well…the names are escaping us now. But judging by the push they've received from KCRW (89.9 FM) and throngs of local fans, it appears we Americans love us some Danish R&B. So when it was announced that the group would make a detour into Fullerton's Commonwealth Lounge, we anticipated on of the best Wednesday night soul sessions the club has seen in a while. Turns out we were right.
The Show: Though she remained indelibly composed for most of the night, Coco O.'s wide-eyed stare into the Commonwealth crowd was indicative of Quadron's genuine surprise over their warm welcome to the States. But given the sultry, finger-snapping vibes of their debut album, it was obvious that this sleek, dim lit watering hole full of anxious admirers put the band right in their element.
