To their credit, MYTHS came back and performed the hell out of the second half of their set. The songs were elaborate, with layer after layer after layer built up and slowly torn down piece by piece until the track met its end. The ladies' vocal styles were antagonistic, pairing the screamed rage of Lief Hall, her passion worthy of Karen O, with operatic harmonies and high-register yelps of Quinne Rodgers.
Track "Prism Portraits" put both personalities on display and tore through the silence of a venue in awe. The complexity of it all worked, and the crowd started to respond and engage. But half an hour quickly seeped away, and it felt as though the concert was over before MYTHS really got started.
