Governors Ball 2014: James Blake Entrances the Crowd at Sunset
As the sun began to set over Governors Ball 2014 for the last time, James Blake took to the Honda Stage with “I Never Learnt to Share" and proceeded to entrance the crowd with his downbeat electronic soul tunes for his entire hour-long performance.
Seated behind his keyboards, the British singer-songwriter performed highlights from his EPs and two acclaimed studio albums, 'James Blake' and 'Overgrown.' The biggest crowd response came when he performed his hit single “Retrograde," a track that inspired a swooning fan sing-along. Later, the audience shifted into a higher gear for “Voyeur,” one of his few dancefloor-ready tracks.
Blake closed his set with the more serene “Measurements” from his self-titled album. Fans whistled and clapped as he extended the songs ending before heaing out into the evening for the festival's final headlining sets.
