Bonnaroo apparently has missed K.Flay.
Lead singer Kristine Flaherty — aka K.Flay — entered the festival’s This Stage Friday night to a crowd of jubilantly chanting fans. It marked the musician’s return to Bonnaroo after seven years.
As a trio, K.Flay delivers a mix of indie, alt-pop, and alternative hip-hop sounds. The group’s diverse mix of genres made for an energetic crowd, which clapped and belted out lyrics to each song.
Much like the band’s mixed bag of genre influences, Flaherty proves her versatility on stage as well. She went from guitar playing to pounding on drum machine pads, and rapped as well as sang.
During the set, Flaherty announced that her upcoming album “Bad Vibes,” will be released July 12. She previewed some of the unnamed songs to the Bonnaroo crowd and dipped into their previously released catalog for “It’s Strange,” “Sister,”and “High Enough.”
