PHOTOS: Seinabo Sey, Chicago, IL

Seinabo Sey brought a soul pop and r&b vibe to the VHS Tour with X Ambassadors. For most of her performance, the stage was dark with the occasionally strobe of light. It made the audience focus on her voice. Sey sings effortlessly, no matter if she’s singing high or low. She connected with the audience telling personal anecdotes about the inspiration behind her songs. Sey is definitely the next best thing out of her home country of Sweden and one to watch. Check out the full online photo gallery of Seinabo…

Everything about this track will implant listeners into the moodiest, homiest venue they can think…
